Have stayed in both Bath Marina Campsite and the C&CC site in Oxford on our travels, both are great little sites.
Easy Park & Ride just down the road from Bath Marina, great for getting into town. Also park and ride close to Oxford site or lovely walk in to town along the river.

Thanks for sharing the pics - but why are they so small?

Don't get all technical with me!

I did wonder, but thought at least they were up and Scooby wouldn't be asking me for pictures lol!

Also, they get bigger if you click on them.

Yes, although I took my bike and cycled to Bath station and back, to get to Bristol. Plus, when in Oxford, I cycled up to the John Radcliffe and Churchill hospitals on successive days sunny

Had a look at installing the new Empi shifter, decided that there's going to be plenty of adjusting needed to clear the handbrake (there's no way the standard one will in first as it is . . . )

one best left for the experts i think

Drove 'all the way back' from Henley after a FAB weekend with Brazi friends Als & Greenjc90.
The Gin Cruise on Saturday was really good - some of you on Facebook may have seen some pics!
Will post a few pics of the weekend when downloaded.

Took Sadie to the builders merchant to get some fencing. For some reason Margaret did not want all the wood in her new car Smile

Got an old toothbrush and cleaned the channels in which the rear windows sit.

Pleased with this work, I then cleaned the edges of the rubber on the pop-top.

Filled it with tools and an overnight bag anddrove it to Langley.

Picked up some wall tiles, new flooring, paint and skirting boards and took it to my mother in law’s house to do some jobs.

Local roads now treated with grit & salt. So now standing on the drive for a few months with an occasional clean and re-positioning of the tyres. Batteries to be kept topped up via the hook-up cable.
De-humidifier unit with crystals in the sink. Soft-furnishings removed and curtains spread open. Roll on Spring.

WD40 locks, put in reverse gear and took hand brake off, placed a de-humidifier inside Scooby by the rear unit.

Curtains to be removed soon for the winter.

Was that you I saw driving south past Heathrow just before lunchtime today?

There was an orange Brazibay going the other way, as I was heading towards Oxford.

Bumble sits on a slope, so cannot do that; having said that, I'll be out in her soon again.

Possibly staying overnight in Dorchester and Oxford next week (must look up the weather forecast first!)

Massive difference, literally like night and day. The CSP shifter isn't cheap but really well made sits nearer the driver and with the bushes all sorted as well it's so much nicer to drive

Took Sadie to the local stables yesterday to get a trailer of horse manure for the garden. Never towed anything before so I was feeling proud and manly to have achieved this tiny thing.

Our vans take to pulling a trailer very well. The one thing I keep forgetting to attach each time is that mini flag-pole so I can see that the trailer is still following me in the rear view mirror! lol!
