Humberto goes (Back) to Hayling Island

Humberto goes (Back) to Hayling Island

Wednesday 6th December: Well, we found ourselves with another couple of days free in our current busy schedule (roll on next summer when we hope to be free as birds to roam at will). The forecast was “Wild and Windy” which I like.  It keeps the coastal car parks clear.  Hayling Island is, in my opinion, ten times nicer in Winter than Summer.  Wrapped up warm you can walk along the beach to sea-front cafes (or the Ferryboat Inn) or…

Humberto Heads to the Cotswolds

Humberto Heads to the Cotswolds

Tuesday 14th November 2017: Currently life is getting in the way quite a lot and so we find ourselves snatching Humberto-time as and when we can, more often than not mid-week and at short notice.  Bear with us and we should be more settled and, me, more diligent with my Blogging than at present.  Anyway, here’s a quick update from last month. Since we found ourselves with a couple of days free, mid-week, we decided to make the most of…

Humberto goes to Brecon

Humberto goes to Brecon

Friday 27th October Due to various commitments over the next few months we decided to make a break for it, for a last long weekend for a while. I’d recently heard about the “4 Waterfalls Walk” in Brecon National Park, Wales, and decided I needed to get some photos of big waterfalls. We headed out to the Caravan and Motorhome site at Brecon Beacons on Friday for 2 nights with the plan to head to the Angel Inn, Pontneddfechan, on…

Humberto heads to Burnham on Sea

Humberto heads to Burnham on Sea

Friday 13th October 2017 After a Friday night at out “local” car park, the Crown Inn, Cholderton, Wiltshire, we headed off early in the direction of Weston Super Mare. We had every intention of going into Weston but got diverted and ended up slightly south, at the Caravan & Motorhome Hurn Lane Club Site, Berrow, Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset. In truth it’s in the middle of nowhere and I can’t say I was all that keen on the area or the beach,…

More Pub Car Parks (Whoops!)

More Pub Car Parks (Whoops!)

I don’t want you to get the wrong idea about Humberto but he does seem to end up in a lot of pub car parks. Our first one, on Friday evening, is set to become a bit of a favourite I think.  The Crown Inn at Cholderton.  It’s literally a 10 minute drive from home.  The pub is lovely and traditional, they do nice food and the car park is big and quiet.   The way I look at it…

Stuck in Old Sarum. A Warning.

Stuck in Old Sarum. A Warning.

“Prevention is better than Cure” goes the saying. How about “Not parking on soggy, sloping, grass in the first place is better than tricks and tips to get out of it”? We decided to go fairly local this weekend, to avoid the traffic hassles of a typical Friday evening rush-hour(s).  The very first place we ever stayed in Humberto was C&CC at Old Sarum, Salisbury (almost exactly a year ago). It’s a nice site with a pedestrian/Cycle path into Salisbury running…
