14 days already?!! It just doesn't seem possible and yet here I am after 2 weeks on the road sitting in Delores opposite the most stunning views...but more of that later.
Next stop on our list was Craster for a kipper. The main problems here were that the car park needed £2 and we arrived in the middle of a deluge. We found a parking spot and I left Steve in charge of the van while I went in search of change. By the time I'd established that the only thing in Craster was a smokery I was utterly soaked - but I'd got me a kipper so it was mission accomplished and off to the campsite.
The site itself is stunning if a little close to a main road and completely lacking EHU. Not sure how the CCC justify over £15 per night for no electricity but there we go. We needed at site in the area and this was the only one with spaces. When we arrived we were ticked off for not both having our membership cards and after showing us to our pitch the warden said "I think you're the last tonight, thank goodness.". The sign outside said 'Non Members Welcome'. Maybe that was our problem. If we'd been non-members we'd have been welcome but as members we were clearly an inconvenience.
No electricity meant digging our the games box and after jointly winning a game of patience Steve wiped the floor with me at Top Trumps - who says romance is dead? Tomorrow we plan to take a boat trip to the Farne Islands if the weather allows. At the moment it's blowing a gale and chucking it down, still, what else do you expect from a British summer?
