Good luck with the journey Sandra.

I'm off tomorrow too. Not sailing (Rosslare-Cherbourg) till Monday but starting out tomorrow.

I do lists - in a big way! Just to put in the last-minute stuff n tank up with water. Then lunch with the kids and I'm off.

Bon voyage!

Have a good trip Jean, and you too Sandra.

Going anywhere nice Jean ? Did you come up with a solution for your damp problem, or are you heading south to dry the van out!
Stay safe and have a great time. Keep us up to date.

Arrived at peterbourgh

A CL, (Caravan club ) Hill farm, a pick your own fruit farm that sells local produce

Very pleasant location, peaceful site

We usually stay here as its about 150 miles from home, via the A1, which is a rather pleasant route unlike the M6

Prices have gone up, it's £14 with electric

But we did pass several lay-bys off rd that you could spend the night for free, some with food cafes

I'll post a photo tomorrow

At £4 25 a meal no need for supper !!

I'll take Shadow a little bit but it's not part of his diet

Not part of mine either but there you go

No washing up , early night ready for tomorrows journey, maybe watch a video

Where are you??

At the moment, Langres, heading towards Chalons en Champagne or Epernay Tuesday or Weds. Which way you going?

I'm in the middle of the Irish Sea/English Channel, who knows? Think my damp is sorted but only time will tell....

Stayed last night at a small campsite, the trading post, about 50m short of Rosslare.

Then discovered that my lists had let me down - no dressing gown!

Still, a wee detour into Wexford (looks like it's worth a longer stay) solved that problem.

And, true to form, I was stopped and asked where a particular bank was!

I'll wave North when I land tomorrow Sandra!
