We’re travelling nearly as far as England today, in the comfort of the campervan. It’s great that many good campsites are open all year round. Lidalia has good amenities – electric hook-ups, on-pitch water, tv reception and wi-fi. So all of a sudden, winter travel becomes a pleasure. And as for the journey – there are no worries over finding refreshments open on a public holiday, and rest facilities are available if needed – HBTW in particular, enjoys an after lunch zizz . . . . . . . . . .
So we have the perk of an extra wee holiday at the end of the festivities, as we take a visitor home. Come to think of it, Twelfth Night is when the decorations are due to be taken down, and stretching things out for a bit longer is perfectly acceptable. Back to normal then, is shunted on to Monday, 6 January. Perhaps I am learning something more about Wisdom after all.
Misty is excited about having an adventure so early in the year. She thinks it bodes well for the rest of 2014. The best thing about camping and caravanning is the informality, and Newcastleton has several eateries in easy walking distance, so we can eat out if the fancy takes us.
