27th to 29th July Suffolk to Edinburgh

Started off from Home to Clumber Park, a journey of 149 miles for the first day. Sunny day, stopped off at service station and bought food at M&S. Very busy including the caravan and motor home parking.

This time got a picture of the entrance as we approached! Bikes have to be locked away here in sheds, as they have a theft problem. Was interesting to see a security guard every so often doing his rounds.

Next day we set off on the long 200 mile journey to Berwick. Our favourite trruck stop at J52 on the A1 was closed on a Sunday, but we did refuel at the petrol station and got some coffee. Stopped off in a lay by on the A1. Passed Ferry bridge Power Station and Newcastle and the Angel of the North.

Crossing the border on the A1.

Arrived at Berwick Caravan Club - lovely view from above the Harbour and Town.

The fimal trip was 65 miles to Edinburgh Caravan Club on Marine Parade. Small detour around some roads, but arrived safely. We then had Thunder and Lightning and floods of rain! No chance of doing anything at night!
