Some places are just...

Some places are just so lovely and Fotheringhay must rate as one of our favourite moorings.  Two years ago when we first headed out this way we stayed at Fotheringhay for 16 days!   The moorings are private and owned by the local farmer who charges £4 a night to moor but the views are stunning, the walking excellent and the Caravan Club CL site just up the hill on the same farmer's land has a sanitation point and recycling facilities.  We are only staying for four nights this time - providing the water levels behave themselves - before moving off  slowly towards Peterborough where we plan to be for next weekend.

Yesterday was a day for visitors.  We had our friend Gloria come out from Market Deeping to see us, bringing her friend Irene.  Yarwood was inspected and then I subjected our visitors to a lunch of stuffed portabello mushrooms shortly after which they left... ?

A hour later Joe's daughter Abby, and partner Wardy, arrived from Colchester.  They have booked into the Castle Farm B&B (the Farmer's sister's establishment) for the weekend.  Yesterday evening was spent catching up, eating and drinking and watching the F1 qualifying.  Today we are going off walking together but back in time for the Grand Prix...if it goes ahead?
