Downwards to Uphill

At last we were rolling again after a long period of inactivity and we were heading down to Weston Super Mare or the Uphill region to be precise.

I quickly popped into Morrisons at Weston to get some bits and pieces.

Uphill Boat Centre have a campsite at the Uphill Marina. The large pitches are set around the perimeter of a salt water lake. The site facilities were closed down for the winter period to stop the water freezing, so we used the showers and toilets at the reception building. These were clean and immaculate.

We were only staying for one night as this was Elsies first trip away in the campervan just to see how we all got on together.

It was just a short walk down the road to the beach passing a small café/shop that has good reviews. The beach links to Weston Super Mare and it’s very popular with dog owners. Ruby and Elsie just ran and ran. As usual with Weston it is rare for the sea to come in, so Elsie didn’t get chance to swim.

After the breezy walk along the beach we settled in for the evening and had our old favourite first night meal of Meat Balls, Pasta in a home made Tomato Sauce and I had a nifty Barcardi and coke. Heating on and we were all cosy for the night.

Elsie needed a wee in the night, but she woke me to let her out, so we are getting there.

I think the girls enjoyed their short break.

We had to vacate the pitch by 10.30am which is early for us so we hastily packed our gear and headed to Wells, where we parked up and cooked Bacon baps before hitting the city.

Wells is always a pleasant City to wander around taking in the sights particularly the cathedral. We bought a Cornish pasty and a cake for lunch then heading home.

All in all it was a successful trip the dogs enjoyed the run around on the beach we needed the break away from our commitments.

When it’s gone it’s gone

When it’s gone its gone
I don’t normally sell items on my blog,  but I have a very rare collectable piece of nature for sale.

Here is possibly the last piece of snow from the UK March 2018 storm. It just needs a little TLC to bring it back to as new condition. It measures 18 inches by 9 inches and it would be a super addition to someone’s snow collection. I’m open to offers, but it is only on a cash before collection basis. I apologise to any international buyers, but due to customs restrictions I can’t ship outside the UK.

Chicken not included.           No chickens were harmed during the photo shoot.

NOTICE

Sorry folks, but the snow has now been sold to an elderly gentleman from the North Pole who is an avid snow collector. Apparently Mr Claus is flying in tonight to pick it up.

This gives a whole new meaning to brain freeze. 🙂
