Luckily, the rain only lasted an hour or so, so we were eventually able to hit the road. Then the weather changed to beautiful sun! One day out of seven - not the best of odds. Can’t even say that it was a day without rain, but we enjoyed every second! What a difference flat terrain, lack of back spasms, no bike malfunctions, and no rain can make on your progress! We flew down the roads to York making good time for once.
But there was no room at the inn. First site wouldn’t take tents, 2nd site full, 3rd wouldn’t take tents (familiar story, I know!). Farther and farther away from the only town I wanted to visit we wandered. A kind man at the last site recommended another campground and even gave us a map there. The lady at the desk called ahead for us to make sure there was room. At least we wouldn’t have to go too much further.
Very cute little town along the river with a pub and nothing else but the campground will be our home for the next few days. Desperate to do some laundry, we were pleased to find a sink and an old ringer. Clothing hung out on some hedges did the drying the old fashioned way until another camper lent us the use of her clothing line. It really is the little things in life that make all the difference, and you never know what the simplest of gestures could mean to another.
