Touching Souls

Sunday morning and we decided to go out for the day in Puffin. A campervan is not just for holidays.

Tewksbury was our destination and was only a short drive from home.

Reaching Tewksbury mid morning we parked up in the Spring Gardens car park in Oldbury Road (no Height restrictions). A market occupies the car park on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Ruby came with us and I think she enjoyed the trip, it’s hard to tell, but for such a small dog she struts about like she owns the place.

We wandered up towards Tewksbury Abbey and admired the “touching souls” statue created by Mico Kaufman in 1999

Opposite the Abbey in Church street is a coffee shop called Caffe’e vino bar Italiano with a sign on the door saying, “cool dogs allowed”.

Ruby thinks she is cool, so in we went.

Tea, Coffee, flapjack and a dog biscuit for Ruby from the waitress.  Caffe e vino

Tewksbury is full of historically interesting buildings

We later drove a short way out of Tewksbury towards Gloucester and just past the Marquis Motor home dealership is a lane called Lower Lode Lane with a picnic area at the end looking out over the River Avon. The beauty of having a campervan is the being able to park up and switch on the gas heating on a chilly day, brew a cup of tea and dine on homemade baguettes.

Suitably refreshed we set of again this time retracing our steps. A detour into to Morrisons for diesel and then taking the pretty way home, taking a meandering drive through the Cotswolds.
