speed blogging - for busy country folk like myself

what a really great weekend in my home county gloucestershire, thank you pete and tracey for all your planning and hard work. was great seeing 13 airstreams in a rally field in the uk.

flo, scarlett, hazel and me hanging out taking in what seemed like the first and last of summer '09

(below) flo and scarlett trying out the local produce, down the road in wales -

(left) monnow bridge, being jumped on by flo, hazel and scarlett. sole remaining mediaeval fortified river bridge in britain where the gate tower stands actually on the bridge. it was built in the late 1200's

(right) and (below) the roundhouse/ aka kaymin, bit smaller than the folly we live in but much better views, and this one was visited by nelson.

only two bad bits were leaving and our vw getting hit from behind and having to cancel my visit to the vw festival on the sunday.

(right) we also manged a quick curry at what was voted a top 100 uk restaurant and 3 best curry house in the uk -

to top the weekend off i headed to southampton on monday to pickup a very nice 59 caravanner which i'm very impressed with. it's got a great body and solid floor, just a bit like my boots after a weekend camping it needs a good polish. she sold within 5 days of arriving, one week in workshop and then a new life in the english countryside starts the week after. we do have some more for sale on http://www.vintageairstreams.co.uk .
