Mum turned up at 0800hrs as arranged and we dutifully fed her bacon butties, 2 mugs of tea and a mug of coffee. Sat chatting for a few hours before saying our farewells with more tears from the female of the species and then prepped for the move. Dumped the grey as we were sat right over a drain and wouldn't cause a nuance to anyone else. I did get the fridge to work on gas after being unplugged last night. I was worried that the angle would be too great, but I managed to level up, so no harm done to a fridge full of fresh meats, fish and salad. One of mums carers also popped in to say hello. She's a friend of mine and also the main manager of all the carers and asked why I wasn't plugged in as usual, but I didn't make a drama out of it, as mum has to live there after all and I never wanted to get the other lady in trouble. Seems by all accounts she a bit of a grizzly bear with everyone. Set off about 1130, only to find the little one way system lane blocked by contractors who were re-surfacing the road with boiling tarmac and stone chips, only coming the wrong way down the lane and causing all sorts of problems with the traffic. Firstly you would have thought they'd have given notice or sign posted the fact that so many large lorries would be blocking the road in the wrong direction and secondly, I couldn't see any reason whatsoever for them carrying out the resurface work. One of the best roads in the village!! More madness of the council and totally beyond me I'm afraid. Finally got past the contractors, but only after having to sit and wait in the hedgerow for them to complete the road as they passed. Was also worried about hot tar on the m/h, but thankfully that didn't happen. I then set off and couldn't help but fill my new tyres with all the chippings, which I couldn't fully remove, so dutifully spread them all over the A143. Felt pretty bad doing so, but my hands were tied so to speak. Hope no one lost a windscreen because of me or any of the other cars that got stuck down the lane and then ventured onto the main road. Now sitting in a nice lay-by on a B road and having lunch, just relaxing and watching the world go by. We're only 5 miles form BritStop 211. I called them first thing this morning and they were lovely on the phone, so all booked in and can't wait. It promises to be a lovely view along the way, so I'll keep you posted later. Arrived at the 211 and all I can say again is wow. The pictures do it little justice as it's simply wonderful. We were met by the landlord who quickly showed us to our parking spot so all settled in for the night. We're around the back of the place which suits us fine and probably quieter for later tonight. It's a popular place and right on the seafront and marina. Speaking to the staff they served up hundreds of meals yesterday, so a slick and well run place and one that's worth the journey to visit. Did our usual as soon as we pulled up and booked straight in and was all done in less than 5 mins. We're not on EHU as we've not asked for it and we don't need fresh or to empty any black or grey either. So sat in the glorious sunshine and watching it slowly set across the water, highlighting all the boats and the marina. Absolutely lovely. We met another nice couple and shared stories over a few drinks and we'll meet again for a bar snack later. They're booked into accommodation and not in a m/h, but social fun people to chat too. We'll be setting off around 1100hrs again tomorrow and plan to end up at 138 for the night, so more BritStop info to follow.
