Title says it all.... now that you can go away in the MH and stay, where are you off to ?

Those of us not in the UK are still not able to use our MH due to lockdowns, but you lot are freeeee

So are you taking advantage and where are you going ? Or not...... ?

Nice part of the country, the coastal pathway around Berry Head towards Dartmouth is brilliant with stunning views, if you venture into Dartmouth, go to the "Good Intent", one road inland from the Lower Ferry, but do not think about taking a MH across there - Dartmouth is not designed for anything larger than a Berlingo......

With the MH use the Higher ferry ONLY, easy parking on left as you leave ferry, park there and walk through town past boat pound towards Lower Ferry and what used to be the ONLY hospital - about the size of a small Doctor's surgery...... not sure it is still functioning.

Some great restaurants in that locality or as you drive out of Dartmouth towards Plymouth there is a nice pub on the right (forgotten the name) by a right angled left bend, good size car park.

Or, go round the coast towards Slapton, but check the road is open before venturing along as it is often closed due to storm action. The CMC Slapton site is good and there is great pub + beer garden near there (off the main road so a little walk from the site.). The WW2 tank on the beach used to begin the sea (casualty of disastrous practice for D-Day landings), worth a short visit - I helped pull it out of the sea into its present position. The boat in the background of these pictures is 'British Diver' at that time a boat owned by the British Sub Aqua Club of which I was SW Regional Coach when the tank was pulled out, Pete Bernardes, it's skipper is driving the inflatable below. My suit is drying at the front of 'British Diver'....... I was probably below eating after a very long day that started the evening before !

One of my memories, Ken Small was a really enthusiastic owner and leader of the Project, although very frustrated by the repeated weather delays.....

Does anyone know when sites in France will open or are they already ? Obviously this is particularly aimed at those other members living in France....... but who knows, someone may have heard/read it somewhere..... I haven’t...

Fridges are reported as having a + or - 5 degrees tolerance. We level our MH using a small amount of water in the kitchen sink - if it drains properly that’s OK and the fridge will work. Much easier than using spirit levels as the water is from the tap using the residual pressure from when it was switched on previously.

Cheap, quick and reliable.

It works for us (as does the fridge) using the level supplied by the water draining evenly.

......

...but I'll bet good money that some parents will still be there with their kids outside of school holiday times which is just plan wrong!
What's the betting that these self same parents will be demanding and complaining, that their chikd(ren) have missed out on teaching during the pandemic and where are THEIR private tutor sessions from the £1.4bn package that they should get ?

I think you are right about it though.....
