30th May Chapel Lane to home ...

Left Chapel Lane

View from the inside of Chapel Lane

A quick stop at the farm shop for Breakfast, and a three hour trip home via the M42/ M6/ A14, stopping off at the A1/ A14 junction for some fuel and a small rest.

Breakfast at Becketts Farm Shop just a quick walk from Chapel Lane.

Chapel Lane CC Birmingham 29th May

Yesterday we lots of work at Peter's - mains sockets, new kitchen tap (failed microswitch), and the Oyster Satellite dome with a few more bits, and finished with a Whisky tasting. This looks a neat bit of work and looks like a Golf Ball - we think it looks like aliens have landed on the roof. It is awaiting a new Avtex TV with satellite reception and then we can check it out. We borrowed a car and went to relatives in Kirby Lonsdale for lunch.

Spent the afternoon chilling after a long drive down the M6, pausing only at a Motorway Service station. Very expensive with a very poor selection, so will avoid that franchise in future!

Lazy day planned tomorrow morning .......

New Oyster satellite dome on roof, smaller in size than other domes, and no dishes fitted our roofspace, so our only choice!

Blackpool South again - 27th May

A lovely sunny afternoon at Blackpool South Caravan Club site. Got a spot underneath a shady tree, and just had supper sitting outside. Makes a change from the weather last week.

Came via Keele Services (which had a good dozen coach and caravan slots outside) and Chapel Lane CC near Birmingham from Suffolk. Last night had a BBQ with food from the Farm Shop near Chapel Lane, hopefully will stop off there on the way back.

Alfresco living on the road .....
