After what felt like rather a lot of cleaning, as well as replacing the leisure batteries, we finally got away for our first weekend at the end of November.
We decided not to go to far in case we had problems, so headed south to the New Forest. We wanted a small, quiet site to stay on and chose Acres Down Farm. The owners were very enthusiastic and went to great lengths to explain that it wasn’t a problem if we got stuck in the field, they had a tractor and we wouldn’t be the first people to be towed out. Should we have taken that as an omen? We got her out eventually!
Anyway, we had a very pleasant weekend walking in the forest. We did discover that the 12v supply in the back of the van isn’t a standard cigarette lighter plug. So instead of watching a film, Rosana beat Dan at cards. By quite a lot…
Anyway, some pictures from the weekend.
