Leaving Gill and Trevor’s we headed directly to Seaton in Devon, and apart from a short break, made good time arriving mid afternoon
though the A303 past Stonehenge hasn’t changed; slow moving traffic and this was in the middle of winter!!!! This section of the A303 needs urgent attention, come on Boris, you can do it!!
We enjoyed a cuppa with Karon, Andy and his son, Matt before Andy and Matt had to leave and return to Yeovil.
After settling into Churchill’s guest suite, Karon took us to her local curry house where we enjoyed an excellent curry, and
being a Sunday evening in winter, and Seaton being a seaside town, we were amazed anything was open.
The following morning we had a drive around this cold, windy seaside town before heading to Clanfield, not too far from Portsmouth where we were house sitting for Jenny and Bill whilst away. Staying here gave us the opportunity to meet Christine’s sisters and friends, Douglas and Jill who cooked us a very enjoyable breakfast, and Dave and Sue where we were royally entertained; not to mention the more mundane, catching up with the washing and ironing.
We had a very nice evening with Tom and Kathleen at the Horse and Jockey at Worlds End, though again it was raining and the following day we enjoyed lunch with Pat and Dave at the Bat and Ball in Hambledon. Hambledon is famous for
Thursday evening we hot-footed to Gatwick to meet Bill and Jenny’s flight from Spain. We then we headed straight back to Clanfield where we stayed up half the night catching up with a couple of superb bottles of NewZealand Marlborough, after which Bill and I polished off half a bottle of Soberano for good
measure. Thank you both for the use of your home.
Tomorrow we head to Essex, staying with Jane, Dave and Mia.
