Sandringham - Elmswell

Thursday, 19 Sep 2013 | Views [254]

Gee we could tell these B&B houses a thing or two.  What is it with showers!  At Rogers we had to run around in the shower to get wet, so we both postponed our hair washing day until this morning.  Well this morning the shower went ... Read more >

King's Lynn - Sandringham

Wednesday, 18 Sep 2013 | Views [329]

Last night we burned the midnight oil talking to Roger our B&B host.  He's only had the hotel for six weeks.  He bought it at auction in a slightly run down condition.  The prevous owners had it full of clutter and didn't even bother ... Read more >


Escrick - King's Lynn

Tuesday, 17 Sep 2013 | Views [305]

A bit of a nothing day today.  Weather has been cold and wet and the countryside we  have travelled through has been flat and featureless.  Towns fairly ordinary.  Lots of trucks on the road today.  Mostly heading north in the ... Read more >


Howden-York-Escrick

Monday, 16 Sep 2013 | Views [316]

One thing I noticed yesterday, and forgot to comment on, was the appearance of the ubiquitous green landrover.  We have seen quite a lot of them on the roads in the past couple of days, driven by ye ole farmer. We spent all of today in the old ... Read more >

Monmouth - Howden

Sunday, 15 Sep 2013 | Views [368]

Internet connection is poor in our current B & B so this will be short and sweet.  Yesterday the weather packed in, although not as badly as predicted.  We ended up doing a lot of driving which has got us just south of York in a small town ... Read more >

Highbridge - Monmouth

Saturday, 14 Sep 2013 | Views [312]

We had a brief tour of Burnham-on-Sea just out from Highbridge.  Essentially, to get a decent map of the UK so as to make Janices navigation easier.  Tide was out, a long way, and many small boats were high and dry on the sand.  The beach ... Read more >

Bodmin - Highbridge

Friday, 13 Sep 2013 | Views [122]

The Cornish mizzle turned into a steady rain during the day.  Our only stop of note was in Tintagel.  The castle there is where the legend of King Arthur was born and perpetuated by successive generations of monks who seemed to like spending ... Read more >

Bike ride to Padstow

Thursday, 12 Sep 2013 | Views [100]

Mizzle, the misty Cornish drizzle that we woke up to this morning.  Not enough to keep us off the bikes.  In fact perfect biking weather.  The trip to Padstow along the Camel trail was only 10-11 miles return.  Lindsay on a trike, ... Read more >

Bodmin Cornwall

Wednesday, 11 Sep 2013 | Views [118]

For the next couple of nights we're staying in Bodmin with Lindsay an English friend of Janice's.  The towns, we passed through to get here, don't have the same tidy/quaint appeal as in Ireland.  The country landscape is still rolling hills ... Read more >
