Finally we are back out in the camper, laden down with wet weather clothes just in case the forecast for sunshine turns out to be over optimistic.
Day 1 we left home just before lunchtime with a general aim of the Cotwolds. Headed over Nant Y Garth, through Llangollen and Shropshire. Stopped for a bit of lunch on a quiet lane over-looking the canal before heading down the M54 towards Birmingham.
Rain started early afternoon (fabulous forecast then? as always) so we decided to look for a site south of Birmingham to overnight on and move to Oxford tomorrow.
Staying at the CC site at Chapel Lane which is between Solihull and Redditch. On arrival they said they were fully booked as lots of people staying for Crufts! Iain did his ‘you better be joking’ speech and expression and 5 minutes later they found 6 spaces. Always worth arguing when CC say they are full as they always find spaces – it must be some weird warden game they like to play.
Next door to the site is a Transport Museum, Iain was looking excited with the prospect of a couple of hours in there but its not open for another 2 weeks. So making do with reading and listening to the hum of the motorway a mile away, with a cuppa and a lemon bakewell tart. And no the rain isn’t dampening our enthusiasm, loving being campervanners again.
