    Had a great time. Walked miles with the dogs ( well I did) saw Buzzards, Had a very close encounter with an osprey. Had 2 Buzzards sitting in a tree after being buzzed by rooks. And a fox walked by about 20 metres away. As for Winnie....she is perfect for us. Very cosy at night. Just perfect. Roll on the next break. Have to say the Rutland area is very beautiful. Rolling hills, stone cottages, quaint market towns. Very pretty.

    Also now understand the full joys of motor homing. What a wonderful way to travel and arrive. Also very easy to fill up and empty tanks.

    The only hitch was the custom made wheelchair carrier drooped alarmingly. So we hauled the electric wheelchair into the habitation area for the journey back. Which was surprisingly easy. So will probably just do that in future. No worries then.

    image.jpeg Chilling with the dogs. Max ( the black one) did insist on walking up Steves body and peering into his face ( nose to nose) at 4 am just to check he was still alive!

    image.jpeg Breakfast. Why does bacon and egg taste so much better in the MH? The eggs are laid by our own hens.
