The flag has gone down and they are off.

Nikki finished work on Monday the 22 October with a smile on her face. The next day shopping and then yesterday a trip to see her mum and dump my surfboard off in her garage. No use to me on the med side of Spain. She is more than welcome to use it while we’re away but I doubt she will. Car up into storage. Then this morning we hit the road and headed for Devizes to a campsite by the canal for three days. It’s a site I always wanted to go to because of the canal and about a two mile walk or cycle along the tow path is a flight of sixteen locks which I always wanted to photograph. So that’s our mission tomorrow. There is a pub beside the canal also so we might have to pop in there just to be polite and sample there offerings. On Sunday we move on to another campsite in Hampshire for two nights, right next to a forest. Then it’s only a hours drive from there to liphook to get the leveling jacks serviced and then on to Poole. Will update with pics of the locks etc when the internet’s better.
