Where I stayed
Longnor Wood Holiday Park
Next stop Donington, this was just a village we expected to drive through on our way to Longnor but oh what a surprise awaited us. On our way through Rick saw a butcher shop sign and wanted to stop and see if they had any pork pies. Of course they did and lots and lots of other nice pies. Rick had 2 pork pies and I had a cornish pastie.Wow , have never tasted anything as good as that before. Aussies get you act together because what we call a pastie is nothing like the real thing
We saw a statue and decided to see who it was. Mathew Flinders if you please, he was born in Donington. Not as well known here as in Oz but it was nice to see where he was born just the same.
Had another orange squash in the local, can't get enough of the look of these old pubs they are so beautiful and cosy.
Thought we would be better to get some miles under our belt so put Longnor in the Garmin ( have to find a better name for it ) and as per usual it directed us straight there. Lovely scenery here and of course another quaint village although the materials used for their buildings is nealry all stone. Will investigate more tomorrow. Here for 2 nights so this will give us ime to look around a bit more.
Have met some friendly people in the park already. Weather holding pretty well.
Looking forward to tomorrow. No doube more pork pies, Rick is making up for lost time.
