Piccadilly Camping, Lacock

Bit of a longer trip this time, all the way to Lacock, Wiltshire to stay at Piccadilly Caravan Park.  Also different as there are three of us so I need to make up the second bed in Hebe - something I've not done before and it's a bit of a kit of parts.

Got there late afternoon, set up and headed for the pub.  In this case the George Inn in Lacock.  Really nice pub with excellent Wadsworth beers.

Something to eat, then back to Hebe to have a glass of wine and work out how to put the bed together.  Sort of got it eventually and only had a few bits left over.

Following morning the weather had improved and it was almost sunny.  I had recently bought a Cadac Chef BBQ so spent a good hour trying to work out how to put it together.  After a pre-lunch pint or two in the Red Lion in Lacock, it was back to Hebe and fire up the “Barbie”.  We had got some supplies from Nick's Butchers at Hartfield earlier so had some good sausages and bacon.  BBQ worked well and all washed down with a bottle of wine.

We settled in for the evening when I noticed I was just short of my daily target of 10,000 steps.  Only one solution, a brisk walk to the Red Lion pub in Lacock for a pint or two.  Steps target achieved, in for the night and in the morning it was raining again.

Got packed up and sorted out (although getting rid of the waste water was interesting) and then hit the road.  Again nothing to eat so a stop at the White Hart at Lower Horsebridge for a late Sunday lunch (again) was called for.

Piccadilly Camping at Lacock is a really nice place and I'll definitely be back there again. Just wish water disposal was a bit easier but practice makes perfect.

Saint Valery sur Somme

This will be Hebe’s last trip of 2018, a visit to the Somme.  Also first time on the Channel Tunnel. The weather had been unseasonably warm ...
