It was time for our annual summer tour. This time we went to visit England again. The Wolseley was packed with all our camping gear and a large tent, to keep us dry in case the weather would break into the monsoon that I thought would be inevitable after such a long drought.
This longboat fits the bridge exactly. Well, they have been practicing since 1799...
The old town is very nice and also busy with tourists but the river doesn't seem to notice.
This tearoom is decorated in fourties ww2 style.The friendly waitresses are dressed in style too. The menu was printed in a rationbook style. Note how the windows are crossed with tape.
Suddenly it was an almost serene place.
On our way to our last campsite in the little town of Wimblington in the Fenlands of Cambridgeshire.
There were cars too. Even a Wolseley M5 limousine built in 1912 and delivered to the Shuttleworth Family in July of the same year.
After only a few days of rain the hot weather had dried out the land completely and harvesting continued. We saw the dust plumes from a long way away.
In nearby March we attended this brilliant Steam and Vintage fair.
Inside there was a display of some steamrollers and the Dad' s army museum.
And another great tearoom.
We arrived in Harwich in time to see our ship sail in. Amazed we had a tropical holiday on that beautiful Island in the North sea!
