The Picts and the Martyrs
Dick and Dorothea turn up at the Blacketts at the beginning of the holidays only to learn that Great Aunt Maria is about to descend and they have to go off and live in the Old Dogs Home in the woods. But they collect their brand new boat, learn to sail and burgle Beckfoot to get the stuff Timothy needs.
Jolly good. Must re-read the rest.

Swallowdale
The Swallows crash into a rock and sink, but make the best of it camping in Swallowdale, while the Blacketts have to cope with the Great Aunt.
Great. Really enjoyed this again!
