This morning the site owner came to say goodbye and presented us with a couple of eggs from his hens for our breakfast, very kind of him.
We left the previous nights site at 10.15 am and drove the short distance to Nantwich, this is a market town in Cheshire with a great range of Tudor and Georgian architecture. It is situated on the banks of the River Weaver and nearby is the Shropshire Union Canal. The town is very pleasant to walk around and there are many individual shops, cafes and restaurants there are very few large shops that you find in every town, Michelle did however find a Clarke’s shoe shop where she purchased a new pair trainers.
After our meander around the town we walked to where Homer was parked and had lunch, whilst we were doing so a woman stopped outside and asked if she could take a photo of our logo on the side ” weem off taraabit “. Following a chat it turned out her parents were from a town close to where we live, were ardent motorhomers and spoke and would understand our black country dialect, she also made note of our website details so she could have a look.
It wasn’t far from Nantwich to our current site a mile outside Sandbach, it is on a farm which also has fishing pools, it’s a 5 van CL site with electric hookup and a small toilet block.
By mid afternoon our friends Alison and Peter arrived and we were soon enjoying a cuppa together and catching up on news after which we went for a walk with Layla around the lakes where she was frustrated when the ducks, geese etc wouldn’t play.
