The Reason For The Trip Is Revealed…

Thursday arrived and excitement was rising as the reason for the trip is going to be revealed tonight… We drove to Okehampton to check in at The Ashbury Golf Hotel. On arrival, our first impression was OMG.. what have we signed up for. But they say never judge a book by its cover, and this…

I Can’t Believe It Can Get Better Than This!

We were in Torquay today, and whenever I am there I cannot help but think of Fawlty Towers and Basil talking to a guest, it is a classic… ‘May I ask what you expected to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping…

Poop Deck…

Tonight we treated ourselves to a special meal at The Poop Deck in Brixham Harbour. Last time we eat here was in 2012 for Mike’s birthday, this time we returned for my birthday treat.

Arrived at Exebridge

We headed out under grey clouds, tried to find blue skies and finally found the sun. Exebridge is easy to find if you follow the directions given, the roads are decent and wide enough. The site itself has a good clear entrance and is on several levels, the pitch we chose is level. We are…

Van Loaded & Ready To Go…

So let the adventure begin… We saw the kids and said our goodbyes which was mixed emotions. But did agree the babysitting duties once we return. The plan originally was to go to the Scottish Highlands, island hopping around the Outer Hebrides, but plans needed to be changed at the last minute for reasons that…
