Im ready to go

Only the usual last minute stuff to put in tomorrow and then my little pal and I are off.
He's had his tick and flee tablet, the Navajo has a new vehicle battery.
I took my house key to Horst and came back with 5 little jars of jam, one from Horst and 4 from his next door neighbour Inis.

Everything is charged up and I hope 8 gb of internet will be enough for a few weeks.
Heading towards Koblenz, but taking my time to get there. Pick Heike up on the 11th and we will be going to the Harz for 8 days.

Is that southwest for you Jan?

I just picked up my MH today after servicing n a few jobs done n I've decided to explore a couple of the Donegal peninsulas.

So I'm parked at Ramelton beside the river. We came here quite a few years ago to see the sailing ship Jeanie Johnston (my maiden name) - a replica of a ship used in the transportation to the colonies of migrants fleeing famine in Ireland.

It's a lovely spot. But I have to return to my daughter's tomorrow as I left my walking (wet-gear) shoes behind n it's due to be very wet on Wed.

Look forward to seeing your itinerary Jan.

I was going to add a pic but I just keep getting the whirling dervish.

Go for it you two intrepid ladies!

We are trying to squeeze in a weekend in Kent but can't commit to anything until we know if any of the work teams are committed to laying our foundations. Driving me nuts.

Then we have a course booked, to brush up Chris's heating skills to include Air Source Heat Pumps, in Swindon. There seems to be a dearth of camping sites near Swindon. The C&CC have one but is full for that weekend. Found another CL type that wants 35 per night!

I’m in Storkow next to the loch on the canal and a short way from the wooden draw bridge. Only for the night, tomorrow on to Bad Dben. Yes it is south west I am traveling Jean. My little boy has been smiled at and commented on many times, The only time he was put on the lead was for a new experience walking up and down the open stairs over the canal.

Well done Jan. On your way.


Looks like a good spot for your first stop. Is it an official Stellplatz or just a CP?


Pity the boat transitting the lock is amotor cruiser and not a barge - but maybe tomorrow?

Lots of good eating in Storkow. Spent three summers just up the road with friends at the golf resort, and another on the marina aire at Besskow. It's a lovely area.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

I found it in the bord atlas, a free Stellplatz. Just noticed as we came back from our third walk the couple next to me are Dutch so had a little conversation through the window. Only here for the night so won’t be trying any eating places in fact I don’t think I will anywhere unless it’s a take away.

I'm over 16,000 steps today - most exercise in a long time.
I dandered in Ramelton this morning, met a man who regaled me with his infatuation with music, specifically Mario Lanza. He has all the discs, films etc. He met Mario's daughter, 3 times, details of when n where. Same for Jack Jones. Now these 2 names I know but then he segued off into lists of others. Lovely man, but I was exhausted!!

Picked up my shoes n walked the dog with my daughter before heading up the Carrigart peninsula. Stopped at Cuan na r - not allowed to stay overnight but I did the board walk and a long paddle along the beach - wonderful!

Then I came up to Tramore beach at Rosapenna - loads of people in swimming this evening (not me!)

Pics:
1. Ramelton Quay parking (where I clipped the backend of the van)
2. Ramelton again
3. The beach at Cuan na r
4. Tramore beach
