Final UK campsite.

65.8 Miles. Now at Ferry Meadows Caravan Club site at Peterborough.

Nene Valley Railway.

Yesterday we spent the day with Terry and Polly, a couple that we had met on the coach trip to the German Xmas Markets. We had called in to see them on the start of our epic journey around the British Isle’s with the promise of calling back upon our return.

After a cuppa and a good natter Terry took us to one of the local golf clubs for a few ales and lunch. The girls had Scampi and Chips while us fella’s had Curried Chicken with a Mango Chutney which was so nice we had to get a second bowl full.  After about 3 hours at the golf club we retired to Terry and Polly’s bungalow for coffee and snacks. After much chatter and many laughs the clock struck ten, so Terry very kindly returned us to our campsite with the promise of keeping in touch and who knows, possibly a visit by them to NZ at some stage. It was great to meet up with such a lovely couple once more and hopefully we may meet up again some time.

This morning we were back on the road to Peterborough and our final Caravan Club camp site. Tomorrow we plan to meet up with my cousin for lunch somewhere in town to catch up on all their news.

This final camp site is probably the largest we have stayed at, with 265 pitches on 30 acres spread over two sites on either side of the lane. With school holidays now upon us the camp sites are going to be busy and there are going to be children everywhere but the next fortnight for us is also going to be busy. Preparing the motorhome for shipment, looking after a narrow boat and the crews dog for 4 days and then finally getting ourselves sorted out to fly home our time will be at a premium.

A total of 4214 miles, since 5 March 2011
