Time is like grains of sand that slip through your fingers. One minute you have them in your hand and the next they are gone. Slowly slipping through grain at a time. It hardly seems five minutes since we set off for Greece. All that planning. All that excitement. All that waiting . Time has flown since we got home. We have rattled around the house. Like marbles in a box we roll around from room to room. So much space after living in a white box on wheels. It always seems odd to come home and takes us time to adapt to our much larger surroundings. We also have that feeling of being let down. The holiday has gone and all we have are the memories. What memories though. The weather since we arrived home ... read more

Geo: 52.2819, -1.58447Well, it is The Globe pub at Warwick, not Stratford Upon Avon though we have spent a very pleasant few hours wandering through Shakespeare's delightful home town. There was a food fair there today so we had traditional Indian and Spanish food for lunch.Yesterday we shopped to we dropped at Rugby - took all of 20 minutes - and then found ourselves a pleasant spot to stop for our last night on Cameo, our trusty canal boat. We went rambling around the countryside before having pizza and and a can of ale for dinner!We returned to Rose Canal boats this morning and have traded our lovely 54' long home for a car and set off for Shakespeare country and then on to the town of Warwick which is very pleasant.

Day 10 - The Royal Road Today we have another long trip planned. It would normally take us about 3 hours to get from Wychnor to Salisbury. On the way, we planned to spend a couple of hours at Warwick Castle and maybe stop at a few other locations. Just before Warwick we stopped at a ruined castle complex called Kenilworth Castle. The original buildings were built in the 1100s and addtions were made until the 1600s. After the English Civil War the castle wall was torn down so that it couldn't be used as a stonghold again. Many of the buildings had areas that were still accessible. Michelle enjoyed climbing through the halls and finding small dark nooks to explore. The Castle was one of the English Heritage sites. We bought a pass that lets ... read more

Stratford on Avon and Warwick. On the 30th April we set out to travel three hours on English roads. Narrow roads with cars parked on both sides and parked in both directions are somewhat of a challenge, especially since in the narrow space between the parked cars , locals drive very fast. Broadway was our first destination and it was said to be the epitome of Cotswold villages It was where I purchased my pullover twenty years ago and I needed a replacement since it was full of holes. I bought two for the price of one, so was happy. On to Stratford, using the Satnav, which took us on the scenic route via the Scottish border. We arrived nearly an hour later than we should have as a result. I spoke harshly to my Lady ... read more

Welcome to Warwick Castle ! Britain's Ultimate Castle ! Quite a statement indeed ! I first visited Warwick Castle on a cold January afternoon and although I could appreciate the sheer size and medieval magnificence of the Castle, I saw virtually nothing of its grounds still under the spell of winter. So when I revisited the place this year in late June, it was with a totally opened mind and I decided to walk to the Castle fron the town that bears its name. Warwick is a pretty town filled with manicured gardens and picturesque black and white buildings which offers a nice selection of restaurants and tearooms. I accessed the Castle from the Gate located just a stone thrown away from the High St through delightful back gardens in bloom and discovered the delightful Thomas ... read more

What a good nights sleep. Peace and quiet and watching the stars before the night sky clouded over and the rain started . The dripping on the roof lights sounding like gentle drumming but it felt very reassuring. Before the darkness fell we watched rigs arriving and leaving. Caravans of all shades and sorts – some old – some new. Motorhomes – Roma home types and larger outfits. It was interesting scrutinizing their gadgets from miniscule satellite dishes to wheely containers for waste water. We found those interesting and possibly useful but pondered on where they could be stored. Some rigs had aluminium foil blinds which I did not like although I guess they have some merit. We have found in the six weeks since we purchased Suzy that we have developed a coping strategy. There ... read more
