Friday 27th August 2010: Moved on to Bedale

We had an easy pack as the morning was sunny and left site at about 8:30 AM. Traffic was pleasantly light on the A66, and we expected to see more caravans heading for the lake district than we did, which was rather strange.
We were on site and pitched by 11:30 and Cath Anderson invited us in for a very welcome cuppa, before we fed Garfield and haded for Masham to have lunch in this cafe.
The Coronation Chicken Baked potatoes here are the best anywhere!

Travelling via back lanes and by-ways we went to shop in Pateley Bridge, which was all but deserted, no doubt this will change later today as the Camping and Caravanning Club have a big meet on at the showground
Pat loved the flowers in Pateley Bridge, here are a couple

We drove to Lofthouse and the reservoir, but it started to rain there so we headed back past this one , which is a long way down over the water level we saw earlier in the year
Happily the sun came out again and Pat took this pastoral view of a village in the afternoon sunshine, we had had a good day and it was nice to meet the gang on site for a good old chat.
We have eleven units on site which is a good turn out for us, and the evening social was a good time to catch up on conversations as we hadn't seen them for a couple of months!
