Slimbridge 1st-5th April

Yes we made it! In just over an hour Eddie did his first voyage and after a few minor adjustments to things not being shut properly all was well. Our pitch was in the orchard which was an adults only field but in truth there were few children around.

 The weather on arrival was sunny which lead to the first ice cream of the year and then to cider (not the first of the year!) in the pub. Monday also turned out to be a glorious day which was ideal for the trip to WWT. A few sample pictures below of the inmates. We returned back with aching feet having walked round all day.

The weather went downhill then turning cold and some showers.  We were lucky to have decided to go south as our other option for this break was derbyshire. However scenes on tv of caravans and motorhomes all parked up in snow in derbyshire, made us realise we had the right choice in Slimbridge! So with the weather not so good we decided to test the relaxing and stress free facilities of motorhoming and lazed around reading, doing crosswords and making cups of tea . We eventually rallied ourselves and made it the 50 yards to the pub for tea. Ahhh this is the life.......
