Thursday 8th November
We decided to give Homer’s wheels a spin as we haven’t been away since our return from France at the end of September, however during this time Homer has successfully passed his MOT and we have had the alternator replaced as it was beginning to show signs of malfunction.
We haven’t travelled far just 59 miles over the border into Wales to Chirk a C and M site adjacent to the grounds of Chirk Castle a National Trust property that we visited by car some years ago.
There were enough people using the site to make it feel OK and the wardens were very pleasant, not always the case, the site is however over run with rabbits they were everywhere and this gave Layla great cause for excitement. At one point she and I watched a battle between two crows, two magpies and a squirrel over some titbit, the squirrel won! The whole episode was watched by a rabbit sitting 10 m away nibbling leaves, all very Beatrix Potter.
After lunch we walked the mile into Chirk and explored the village including buying two nice cakes for after tea, amongst other outlets there is a good pub that allows dogs in, an Indian restaurant and a small Spar supermarket.
Thankfully the weather has been kind to us it’s dry but blustery.
