ENGLAND

London

We stayed at Abbey Wood on the Caravan Club Site. The site was quite nice but Abbey Wood was not somewhere I would want to live, but it was convenient for central London. We had bought tickets online to see the Da Vinci Exhibition at the National Gallery.
At the V & A Museum I took this picture below right, I think it's a snuff box as is was very small. It was one of many inside a glass cabinet.


Trafalgar Square (Frozen up)

Nelson's Column

On another visit we stayed in a hotel directly behind the London Eye and the view from the top of the Eye was great, pity Stevie couldn't enjoy it.

Nelson's Column

Whilst we were in London we visited Tower Bridge, The Royal Mews, and Churchill War Rooms. We had been up to London the previous year to see "Mamma Mia" and we went on the London eye, Tower of London, The Victoria & Albert Museum and St Pauls Cathedral. The Fountains in Trafalgar Square were almost frozen up and it was very dangerous walking across the square as it was a sheet of ice.

The Tower of London

We were visiting when they had put out most of the red poppies, as you can see above, it was very impressive.

The Shard

On our last visit we stayed in the Shard at the Shangri La Hotel. I had entered a competition with Trebor Mints and the prize was two nights stay at the Shard. We could see the Tower of London from our bedroom window


CORNWALL

As the Devon & Cornwall border is only one hour away, we go down there on a regular basis. Before Myrtle came along we would visit my old art master "Doug George", but sadly he passed away in 2011. We have "Glamped" in Polzeath, St Maws, Falmouth, Camelford and other places.

St Mawes Ferry

The "King Harry Ferry" above, is a well used route by us, we first stayed near here back in 1970 in a B&B. It is located on the River Fal near Tralissick Gardens.
I can remember seeing one of the ferry crew spearing a large Sea Bass that was under the front of the ferry.


DORSET

Sidling St Nicholas

Dorset is a very rural, tidy county, I never tire of the crystal clear chalk streams that are found throughout the county, and I love the architecture in the form of light stone buildings often with thatched roofs

Well it was a hot day

Lyme Regis

Lyme is a popular place and we visit as often as we can, its not far away and we can be there in 30 minutes. Motorhomes are catered for and you will find designated motorhome parking places at both top and bottom car parks near the Cob. Take a stroll into the town and explore around the river area.
