to the Shakedown Cruise.
Spent a couple of nights in the Berkshire Car Park after Butlins. I was offered a bed indoors but declined. Quick internal Roxiclean, washing and drying sorted and off to the Fens. Joined by BB and the dogs at a very good campsite. We visited Ely, after BB had installed new hookup socket for me. (Yes, I broke it. Thought I knew what I was doing manoeuvring in the Berkshire Car Park trying to get that side of Roxi as close to hedge as possible and didn’t leave enough slack in the cable 😦 )
What lovely place Ely is, it deserves another visit when I’m next here. We went into the stained glass museum at the cathedral, I didn’t realise the level of detail that goes into the artwork. Being able to get so close and see such tiny brush strokes was fantastic. There were examples from every era and I was surprised how much I liked the really modern stuff. Unfortunately cameras were not allowed in the gallery museum, however managed to get some lovely internal views of the cathedral…
Leaving here tomorrow and back to the Berkshire Car Park for 9 nights and then there is a spot picked out for me on a ferry to France 🙂 Thought about using Eurotunnel after reading a fellow blogger’s account but I’m banned as I’ve got an LPG tank. I’ve also decided be blowed to Brittany for now as I want to have a long summer and Brittany weather will be as cold as here. So it’s down south to Languedoc via the Massif Central and back up via Gascony and Aquitaine etc. and if I can’t afford that much diesel I’ll just have to winter there …..
