Day 08: Swimming, Driving, Henley

Today we review the events and sights experienced in Day08 of our UK Cornish motorhome adventure holiday.   The date is Thursday July 24, 2014.



Bude Tidal Pool
Before leaving the town of Bude; Agata wanted to test out the Seawater tidal pool, so relatively early in the morning we walked there with a Swimming costume:





Mission accomplished.


As we left surf school was starting



We walked back through Bude Town centre and actually bought a few items!


Leaving Bude Campsite
We left  Upper Lynstone camping, another clean, tidy, quiet campsite with great facilities at a fair price!

Drive, Drive and Drive
Next a long and initially moderately scary drive to A30, then M5, M4 towards Henley on Thames.  The initial A30 road was rather narrow, not what we were expecting from a 2 digit A class British road :-(


Nice stop for lunch
We stopped off in the lorry park of a Motorway rest stop.  All our own food and facilities.  A notable improvement on the Service Station fayre.


Arrival Swiss Farm


Agata found and I booked a wonderfully appropriately named Campsite.  What it has to do with Switzerland we never found out.


We realised it was /posh/ when we found that the grey water dump and refill point came complete with a hand sanitiser on a pole to keep your hands clean!



The site is beautifully laid out with hardstanding electric pitches grouped into areas with bushed separating hedges. And a pool!




Walking Henley
Henley is known to be very posh so we thought we would have no trouble finding somewhere nice to eat our dinner that we took from the motorhome.





 We found a park by the lake, the setting was just perfect!





After dinner we walked the long way back to our motorhome via the river bank.  And now a pre midnight time for bed on this out last full day of holiday : -(



Statistics
Reasonable steppage today but not all steps recorded, honest, so actually better than indicated.
