Last night I had a shock at 8pm. Someone rapped the door to tell me the barrier would be closing. I said that's OK, I'm just staying here.
Turns out he was the guardian for the camping and ALL parking overnight is considered camping. So it cost me £23 (yes, £23!!) for an overnight stop, on my own, with no facilities. Well, I COULD have had electricity if I'd moved but I'd had a glass of wine - and generally don't take electricity anyway as it's too much faff. Welcome home to NI, I thought!!
So now I AM home. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. I didn't do many miles but there was lots to see, many very pleasant walks and though there wasn't very much interaction with others due to covid, what there was was enjoyable.
I'm in an area that's under restrictions so I don't think I'll be venturing anywhere for a week or two. I think the wee old lady's request to me to move on brought it home how threatening my presence could seem to a small community.
