NICF Ballyronan Meet

What a weekend, I'm knackered! We had the best time and the most fantastic weather and I'd love to do it all again as soon as possible.

There were seven families altogether, and a few day visitors. It was amazing to meet all the people I've been talking to online for ages. There aren't any photos as there were people present who don't want photos appearing online, as well as young people and children there and it wouldn't be appropriate. I don't think I need any to convey how much I enjoyed the campfire, the evening beers, the barbecue, the craic and the table quiz (even though the girls lost by 2 points). It was really nice to see my little cousin and meet his new fiance too.

The weather was incredibly hot, regarding the actual camping it was too hot. It meant an early morning to escape the sauna and there was no way we could use the tent during the day. Shade was is short supply, and the poor dogs were moved around the shade of the amenity block as the sun moved in the sky. We got some walking in too, and Toby had his first paddle in the water. Ballyronan campsite is a marina and is on Lough Neagh, and I think the little dog was more surprised than I when he leapt off a rock and found himself up to his neck in lake water.

One way to cool off though!
