A late start to 2016!
Well with one thing and another, including the birth of yet another Grandchild on the 12th of January we were not able to get away until the 7th of February. Looking forward to a well needed rest we opted for a short trip to Greenacres CL in Bibury. This is a lovely site we have visited many times before. It is only £12 per night including EHU, and has good views over the open countryside.
With the imminent arrival of storm 'Imogen' we opted for pitch 9, as a 15 foot high, thick hedge gives admirable protection from the south and west. We survived the storm with no problems,wondering what all the fuss was about. However when I ventured out the following morning for a paper and milk there were many trees down on the roads.
On Tuesday I had to go to my opticians in Chippenham to retrieve a pair of glasses that had been in for repair. We then popped home to check up on Zoe who had taken to her bed as she was feeling unwell. All was well so it was back to the caravan.
Cirencester was our destination for the Wednesday where we spent much of the day just wandering the shops.
On Thursday morning the temperature dropped to minus 3,and the water was all frozen up. Soon defrosted though when the sun came up. We then drove cross country to Gloucester Quays, where I picked up a new lightweight jacket for France.
I went to the auction at Moore, Innocent and Allen's sale rooms just outside Cirencester. It was mostly sporting goods,. fishing rods, rifles and the like. Some of the prices were amazing.
Saturday was again spent in Cirencester. The site was now full, all caravans.
On the Sunday we cleared up and set off for home, having had a successful first week away in the caravan.
Only a short entry this time. Longer Blogs to follow on Oxford and Bury
