Harvester continental breakfast and making the decision where to go next. Ian picked Leeds castle via the Wilmington Long Man and Battle (near Hasting). It only took about 330 minutes to get to Wilmington and it was quite warm in the car. But once we got out of the car the wind was freezing even if it was mostly blue sky.

Breakfast was a jolly affair as there were a family from America on the next table. Anna and Hugh came to find us to say goodbye. They were off to find a Eurostar back home from central Paris.

We got away just after 11 and arrived at the site at 3.30ish. Journey was fair and no hold-ups to speak of. If we've omitted to pack anything now - tough! There was a bit of last-minute panic packing but we've got the essentials. Just eaten some left over lasagne which we had in the freezer but are popping out for fuel and a few extra provisions, then it will be an early night as we shall be up and about from ...
