Then the Robin Hood pub, near Southampton for lunch with Barry&Toni before they fly out to Malta.
The run up to Olney was marred by heavy rain, that came and went. Mainly it came in big clumps. I was a trifle damp upon arrival at god-daughter Lucy’s place. But a cuppa and brownies fixed that.
The last leg was mainly in the dark, to Long Melford B&B. Luckily they are nice people, with a nice place. Waited up for me, as I had called ahead, and arrived after 10pm.
TLC for the bike then to bed.
Next morning, awoke to a full breakfast, and a short ride to Acton.
For the readers in Ontario, “It’s worth the drive to Acton” ;0
A big thank you to everyone at the Adventure Bike Shop. Bike needed some more TLC, and a replacement petrol container. Everyone super nice, and helpful.
Only hard part was finding them. Here are their GPS co-ordinates.
And they are in a lovely part of the world.
Rode on that afternoon, to Corby to stay with June&Graham.
They fed me a supper of hot toddy, chilli, wine and whiskey. Perfect antidote to the wet weather.
