Days 16-17 : Pit-stop
As well as fixing some van niggles, recharging all our IT devices, and taking the opportunity to skype with some friends, we did a 'short family walk' (which turned out to be 8k!) The highlight for the boys was spotting a village of thatched cottages, and then a llama in a field (having never seen any before, they thought it was a tall sheep!) . One fish and chip supper (with another first - cheesy chips anyone?) later, and we thought they'd fall asleep easily. But it's 9.45, and two are still awake. We obviously aren't tiring them out enough yet..
PS. Notes from a Northerner in Dorset for the first time in his life.
- There are real places called Puddletown and Piddlehinton
- Delicious irony as I was cooked fish and chips by an EU migrant
- Fields are muddy in southern England even in August. Not wise getting grass pitches on a slope for a 3.5 tonne motorhome.
- They have Morissons in Dorset!
- This place gets even less investment in transport infrastructure than the North.
- If it's even possible the concentration of Range Rovers per square mile has increased from Surrey!
