    What’s going on here then? Staycation is when you take a couple of weeks off work but can’t afford to go anywhere so you stay at home, go to local beaches and other attractions, eat out at local restaurants and pubs, get takeaways etc, you know, doing holiday shit at home.

    All of a sudden it’s now just holidaying in the UK??!! Is a holiday not a holiday unless you go abroad now then?

    Didn't realise it had that earlier connotation - I always thought it was about holidaying locally. Either way vacation is a bullshit Yank term and we shouldn't accept their puns.

    If that's what staycation means then I didn't have a proper holiday until I was 14.

    1 August is the traditional start of Les Grandes Vacances when every French family hits the road. Most French holiday within the country, but I am in town at the moment and the roads are clear. Normally there would be queues in every direction.

    We've booked a caravan break in cannock chase , so we can play with the wild deer.

    I absolutely love it up there.

    I worked up there last year and stayed on this caravan site for 6 weeks, I could speak fluent deer by end of it

    I remember reading an article about that site. Apparently in a six week period they lost more deer than they had lost in the previous 6 years. Rangers said there were instances of pairs of deers linking hooves and antlers and leaping off the side of the gorge to their deaths others just threw themselves under passing lorries. After 6 weeks everything went back to normal but the park rangers are still baffled as to what drove all the animals to commit suicide :sherlock:

    We went down last week for one night, stayed in the Travel Inn in Hayle, we mainly went down to tidy up the Mrs mothers grave. But we had most of the day on the beach. St Ives is closed to traffic 11-4, I knew this beforehand and got there early. Really busy down there

    See this is what I don’t quite understand about promoting the staycation

    Encouraging us all to travel round the whole country

    Surely it’s better for people to go abroad, come back and if they get symptoms self isolate, rather than to have people dart across the country.

    Again it’s the narrative that we’re not the problem, it’s those bloody foreigners

    Probably don't need to tell you this, but watch out for deer ticks if you are out and about walking. They bury themselves in soft tissue of your legs when you walk through undergrowth, but are especially dangerous if they get behind your ears. Lyme disease is something that you don't want.

    Part of the problem is that so many people go to St Ives, Newquay, Bude etc all the obvious places. Then they all head to the beach at the same time, always about 10am, creating queues and parking problems, and stay there till 4-5 and and all leave at the same time making big queues once more.
    There are dozens and dozens of small towns, and beaches all over Cornwall and Devon where this can be avoided.
