February 2011- Kids think we've lost the plot, as we settle down for a couple of days in........The Peak District! About half an hour from home!! We just thought we'd give the van a bit of a run out, after a very harsh winter, when we'd lost palms that we've grown for about 15 years, mature bay trees and mahonias, and ceanothus!
Just stayed a couple of nights, and walked from Mam Tor to Lose Hill. Had a great time, and the weather was even sunny. I think we both just missed being in the van!
April 2011- Cornwall Cycle Event

Later we went to Padstow and had a meal at Rick Stein's seafood restaurant - a snip at £37 each for a fixed lunch + wine!!! Was excellent though.
The day after we went to St Ives - absolutely beautiful weather - lovely place but a bit over-crowded and the Tate Gallery was a disappointment.
