Hubble Bubble Toil and Trouble

We are loving Lancashire. Our pitch at New House Caravan Park isn’t exactly luxurious with views but they were fully booked and kind enough to let me pitch on the yard (still charging full price though) until somebody leaves after the bank holiday. The friends I’m here to visit literally live over the road so this is ideal. The pooches have had a great time at their cottage – Timmy made himself instantly at home by rolling on all of the furniture and the bed! and even Chloe has enjoyed wandering around the garden with Lily & Pippin the Westies following in her wake. Yesterday we visited Kirkby Lonsdale with the dogs and walked over Devil’s Bridge – didn’t find the ‘supposed’ Devil’s hoofprint, then along the River Lune and up the Radical Steps to take in Ruskin’s View which was spectacular.

Not the luxury pitch

 Today Jo and I visited Lancaster in a vain attempt to avoid all of the hype and rubbish  to do with ‘the wedding’. Not all of us had Union Jack flags and bunting hanging from our vans you know. First off was Lancaster Castle which is currently being used as a prison and courts. This building has ‘Hanging Corner’ where they used to have the gallows. The Pendleton Witches were famously strung up here. Then it was a quick detour to see ‘Vicky’s Tadge’ – if you don’t get the gist of the name from the photo then I suggest you ask a local. A nice quiet shimmy around the shops and market and refreshments in Caffe Nero – what a perfect day and not a Bride in sight.

Vicky's Tadge - need I elaborate?

About travellingninjas3

Scarlet haired veggie/coeliac/tattooed/charity shop loving rebel sold everything to take to the road with 3 Yorkies in a campervan to discover the meaning of life & blog about it. It all went well for 18 months but then a flippin bloke walked into my life and turned it upside down so now the travelling has come to a halt but I still live in the van but in a field - marvellous :o)
