We drove down to Burrs Caravan Club Site to meet Kathy and Rob for the weekend! They only live a mile from the site! We were also carrying a transfer box for a Land Rover. This had been in my garage since January, when I had collected it from Frog who had driven it to my brothers place in Basingstoke. It was on its way to Blackie.
The journey from the previous site to Burrs Park could have been superb, if we had managed to see anything, but it was foggy. Proper thick fog, not like the stuff we get down south!
When we got to Burrs Court we were told that only grass pitches were available. Suited us down to the ground as this was the view!
Then it was off to Robert and Kathy's for Dinner. Robert collected us, in the jet propelled roller skate. We sat in their garden supping wine, and then Mark and his gang turned up! Dinner cooked by Robert was a really special occasion! We got a taxi home, they are so cheap up there compared to round here!
Sunday dawned bright and clear, and we wandered down to see Kathy and Ethan do the sport relief mile!
This was everyone gathering at the start. So many were doing the 'Mile', that they ran several separate ones.
Kathy whizzed round the course, not quite doing a sub four minute, but still an excellent performance!
We also watched more trains!
The following day we went on the Tram, from Bury to Media City.
Media City is a bit of an impressive place. It is set round part of the old docks. Next door ITV are building their new studios as well. There is also a branch of the Imperial War Museum, that we visited briefly as it was free and we were in need of a comfort break!
On the Tuesday Robert popped in to say farewell. We cleared up in the warm sun and set off for home, a four hour run which returned a MPG of 27. Not bad when towing! Wepopped the caravan back in storage, ready for the next trip after Easter!
