Go for a surfing / camping trip!
We had so much fun recently on a weekend camping trip to the East Coast of Scotland (Coldingham Bay), where we camped on the beach. Arriving around 7pm we pitched the tent and got the barbeque lit as I got my wetsuit on and headed in for a surf around sunset. A perfect solo 45 minute surf in a beautiful swell, it was a glorious empty beach. After I got out the water, we popped the Salmon on the bbq and opened a delicious bottle of rioja which we had with cous cous and pasta. After dinner we lit a fire and sat around until it died out.
We awoke after a restless night (crashing waves have a weird effect on sleep patterns) to have a light breakfast and head back into the surf, fresh waves battered the beach as the tide began to creep back out. We spent a couple of hours in the 5ft swells and then decided to some lunch and hot chocolate in the beach cafe and head home.
