Motorhome Wanderings

Sat.18th June 2011.
                           This is my first post for 6 weeks because we've been out exploring our beautiful countryside in my favourite months of the year ... May & early June. We travelled down into Shrophire and walked in the hills around Church Stretton before moving on to the Somerset Levels. After a few days of cycling and visiting the nature res. in this fasinating area we  moved south again into Devon then east into Dorset and finally moving into the Vale of Pewsey in Wiltshire.There are too many tales, facts and photos to show on this post, but perhaps the briefest of pictures on our never ending pursuit for the many wonders and mysteries of nature.

  1. What a wonderful time you have had and such lovely places to visit!

    It is a long time since I went to the Dartmouth area but I remember it fondly.

    It must have been such a treat to see all those Orchids.

    The cream tea looked good too ;)

  2. Welcome back and as always lovely pics with great collection of Orchids.

  3. Wish I could go to those places with a Motorhome of my own. But I'll just have to settle with these pictures. Just looking at those pictures, I can tell that you guys were really having fun with your "wanderings."
