This is the OH’s new satnav. Instead of the usual monotone voice, he has downloaded John Cleese, the instructions are very direct and at times very funny.
The cycle route around Rutland Water is lots of miles so we decided to take walks at various points around it. There were lots of walkers and cyclists but it was still peaceful and lovely to hear the lapping water. There is something so relaxing about walking by water.
We heading further out into Leicestershire and stopped by Melton Mowbray. It has a wonderful cathedralesque church.
The guide in the church told us that it was often said that it is only one window short of a cathedral. The OH stopped by the pie shop to buy a authentic Melton Mowbray pork pie. Not my sort of thing. It actually made his weekend.The caravan park was called Rutland caravan park and it did the job nicely. It was just outside the village of Greetham. The facilities were warm and spotlessly clean. In the Ladies there were lovely home from home touches.
On the way home to took a detour to see the Harringworth viaduct. The weather was a bit foggy so we could hardly see the end of it. A good first weekend out but hopefully the next will be a bit warmer.
