I use colors here to indicate the time of day, but in the Netherlands in midsummer, the sunrise in the top row would occur at about 4:30 AM, so everyone is up super early.
There's more that you can extrapolate from this scene. We know for example that the Stachouwer manor is in the middle of the campsite, so it's likely that neither George nor Sarah has worn clothes since the last time they had to leave the campground for an errand. Jamie on the other hand is fully dressed, because he's not as full-on about naturism as his family members. Cass is nude at 4:30 AM because her camper van is perfectly comfortable and also because she's as fanatical as George.
Finally, Caroline has a home on the island to go back to at night, so she arrives on the scene fully dressed. But because it's 4:30 AM, we can assume that she snuck out of the house to see her friends. Which is something she'd do, and future stories will reveal her to be very good at sneaking.
Finally, if the weather is hot enough to be nude at 4:30 AM, it's probably so hot that everyone catches up on sleep later in the day by taking catnaps.

Maybe Picstragram thought the third giraffe was something different.

Cass looks amazing with her hair up.

Perhaps the kids ought to go with the classics: fig leaves and feathered fans.

I'm sure they considered it but thought those options weren't silly enough.

Too boring most likely... I mean, when you get the chance, giraffes is the way to go!

This comic reminds me a lot of an older one called Loxie & Zoot

Loxie and Zoot/The Bare-pit is a major influence, but at the same time I'm hoping to do things a little differently than that comic, which is after all twenty years old. I hope I'm succeeding at that.

Cass has KIDS helping her out with her situation. What'd you Expect to happen? That their giraffe crop would work?
