Bill is on her holly-bobs

Bill has escaped again and gone to Scotland for a little holly-bob.



I thought it best I accompany her - goodness knows what trouble she might get up to without some form of semi-responsible adult supervision.

Internet access very weak and patchy, you might not hear from either of us for a while!

  3. Enjoy & soak up the Scottish country side. We'd love to get away, but alas no X-trail at the moment and with snap lockdowns on the horizon for the foreseeable future we are very wary. Take care, stay safe & hugs from down under.

    1. Thank you Susan. Sudden lockdowns must make it difficult to plan but make sense if they nip outbreaks in the bud before they get too big.

  4. I hope you both have a wonderful time. Playing fast and loose with the term semi-responsible ;)

  5. It seems to me that you will be meeting half of England whilst you are here.

    1. Not me Graham, I will be meeting as few people as possible and having a lovely quiet time! Of course, this could be seen as curmudgeonly and unfriendly but I prefer to think of it as relaxing 🤣

    2. Jayne, I hope you manage to avoid everyone. Lewis and Harris are already full of camper vans at every spot and on every road.

    3. I'm sorry to hear that Graham, but with international travel restrictions for the foreseeable future it was always going to happen.

      I wonder how long before there is a backlash against campervans/motorhomes and caravans? I thought there was somewhere (an island) on the west coast that did not permit leisure vehicles without proof of a campsite booking but perhaps I am confused? Sad to say but I think that is the way things will have to go before small island communities and their facilities are completely swamped.

    4. I meant to respond to this but forgot at the time or was interrupted. Calmac did have on their website for the Western Isles that people were advised to have a campsite booking because all the usual facilities were closed during lockdown. The advice was soundly ignored. An acquaintance on a remote and spectacular beach even had a wild camper knock on her door and ask where the beach bar was. Beggars belief.

    1. Thanks Marlene, it feels perfectly safe here and the few folk I have spoken to all acknowldge it is wonderful to be out and about again. Everyone is keeping further apart than than they would have done pre-pandemic, mask wearing when necessary. The only crazy thing is how few of the shower/toilet cubicles are in use and I can see that being a problem on some sites at peak holiday times. But it's not causing me any problems (selfish grin).

  9. It is so good to get away. We are just back from a four week long trip and off to Scotland too soon. We'll look out for you :)

    1. Thanks Carol. Four weeks? Wow, well done (but you are a 'proper' campervan person, I just do a week and then scamper home for laundry and a restock!)

      Unless you get to New England Bay before the beginning of next week I'll be on my way back to Cumbria, but there are two other Devon vans here which is most unusual. Haven't seen/spoken to their grown-ups 🤡

  11. I'm glad she got away ... and even more pleased that you were able to tag along, goodness knows what she would get up to without you, it doesn't bear thinking about ;-)

    1. Thank you! Bill is generally quite well mannered and careful but does occasionally have mad moments . . . 😜
