Our 2nd week continues our visit to Nottingham, in the mid-lands of England. We head out with David and Iris to Rutland Waters. While we do get in a couple of short walks, it’s cold and windy and a warm fire in an old pub is much more appealing. Next day after saying our goodbyes we start our journey south. We stop to wander Stamford enjoying a coffee and lunch.
The first Guymer’s to immigrate to Australia came from a village called Great Thurlow. We spend an hour in the local cemetery but no luck, they probably couldn’t afford a fancy headstones. It’s a beautiful place all the same. We continued on staying overnight in the university town of Cambridge. Our Hymer is elevated to the next level with a coffee machine.
Back at beautiful Wildhill we spend a couple of days fitting out the Hymer for next years adventures. We spend a day in Hertford, finding the most wonderful pub, buying a BBQ and other bits. In between we have visited London on 3 occasions. Finally today we attended a Sunday service at St. Paul’s Cathedral and Covent Gardens Markets.Tomorrow we say goodbye to Noreen, Swaraj and beautiful Wildhill and head to Chichester to return the Hymer to its hibernation and off to Rome we go.
