It took us nearly an hour to find the place and it was so frustrating because we could see it but couldn't get close, there were road closures and changes so poor Ken was totally confused.

Another three hundred
mile day with some interesting bits of countryside. The journey was
marked by being caught in a major thunderstorm the like of which we
had never seen and we were only a mile and a half from the hotel.
