We were up early this morning and had all the jobs done and car packed by 10.45. so we had a very early lunch and left at 11.45.
I drove the route I had picked, it worked well and is 36 miles shorter than the A 46, M69 etc route. We stopped at Hopwood services for a comfort break and a cup of tea.
I set off again and we picked up the M5 no problem, the traffic was heavy in parts, just short of our junction there was what looked like an horrific crash on the northbound side of the motor way, fire engines police ambulances etc...... the tail back was over 6 miles long and getting worse when we turned off. We had a ride round the houses to find the hotel, they are building an extension and modernising the building, so builders abound.
Ground floor room, clean and nicely furnished. We have a shower rather than a shower over the bath.
Its been a warm day, sunny but the wind made it feel cooler when we got out of the car.
Filled rolls and crisps for supper to night, we had salmon salad at lunchtime.
We travel on to Looe via Trago Mills tomorrow..........
