The aire was full, as usual, with big vans. Few were less than 7 m and some were huge. You wonder how some of them get round small towns - maybe they don't. The joy of Smartie is that we can dump Monty in a suitable pitch and then scamper off to see the sights. You can't do that so easily with a coach sized motorhome and bikes.

Dumb thing is, I forgot to take even one picture of me on the trip in the cliffs etc. Oh well :(
So yes here are all my fabulous cliffs. It was perfect really, the sky was robin's egg blue and the cliffs were white. So it couldn't have been more gorgeous!
