Crossways Caravan Club Site

Our Landrover fleet grew with the arrival of our Freelander.

After our last trip, the Freelander was ready for us. So after a few days when mudlaps and a towbar were fitted we decided it was time for another trip

 This time, we decided that we would put the bits and pieces in the Freelander, go and collect the van and just go.  Wrong!  As I reversed the Freelander to the van, we spotted a huge screw in the front wheel. Off to the tyre agents, who fortunately were able to fix it.  

At our second attempt we were away!

Three hours  later we pulled on to Crossways site, after getting a little lost, which is down near Wareham.  What a super site. Caravans grouped together in little glades.  Some glades were closed due to soft ground, but we soon found a pleasant spot.

We were camped besdide a railway line and five minutes from a pub. Set up and then walked to the pub and the railway station. Train times and ticket prices looked good so offto Weymouth we went  the following morning. Weymouth has certainly changed since I was last there.  We found a 'Weatherspoons' for an excellent and cheap lunch. 
While we were there we got the bits we needed to connect the television up. So back at camp, while we cooked 'Venison' we were able to watch the news.

The following morning we went to Poole. It was warm and sunny and we were able to sit on the quay side watching the world go by and reading the papers.

The Boss keeping watch!

On the Sunday we went to Swanage. A bit blowy, and really busy.  A place worth going back to again.

The journey home was much easier as we did not get lost!  The freelander towed brilliantly, with plenty of power for the steep hills.

When we were home, aminor electrical problem was fixed quickly by Chipping Sodbury Caravans, the van was cleaned and polished and put to bed on its storeage site until the next time.
