Tonight Homer is resting his wheels at Penn Hill Campsite on the outskirts of Bath.
This morning we left Broadway and travelled via the notorious Fish Hill to Stow on the Wold, thankfully here the local authority provide parking places for motorhomes. ( you can overnight here). We spent an enjoyable 2 hours mooching around the town visiting numerous shops.
From Stow we travelled the short distance to Bourton on the Water where again there is dedicated motorhome parking on the coach and car park next to the Co-op supermarket. After a quick lunch in Homer we joined Alison and Peter for a walk around Bourton. It was packed, there were 10 coaches in the car park with what appeared to be every nationality under the sun pouring out for their whistle stop tour of the village. Having said that the people wandering around couldn’t detract a great deal from the picturesque nature of Bourton, even in December it was pretty.
We drove from Bourton to tonights campsite 2 miles from the centre of the city, we chose a route that would bring us here without going into the city, however as we were about to take the road we had planned on, there was a sign saying no vehicles over 6ft wide! No good for us, so I swung back onto the main road which took us into the city where I had to duel with city tour buses, one way roads and traffic lanes that ran out when it appeared they were taking us in the correct direction. Ah well, we made it eventually.
