Friday 18th to Tue 22 July

This weekend we were to me up with Drena & Geoff on Friday 18th at a caravan club rally in Hereford but plans didn't work out quite that way for us. Friday morning we had to do an emergency trip to London we left home at 7.45 and arrived home at 3pm and much to tired to get the motor home out and drive up to Hereford. So we had a relaxing night and set off early on Saturday morning we were on site by 10.30am

The weather was very good nice and sunny but there was a strong wind at times. We went into Hereford for a look around the shops and got back to the site and had a lovely BBQ
