 1st to 3rd March 2024

Back on the road after a three month break, this was really just a fact finding trip to see if the caravan had survived the winter.  Outside we know it would be ok because it has just been serviced and washed, but inside...


Bay View is only a short drive from our storage site, so perfect for a first trip of the year.  We arrived dead on 1pm and didn't need to use the mover after an excellent display of reversing from D.

Our allocated pitch was a bit further than we would have liked from the facilites, but ok.  We were pleased to see a new facilites block under construction, which will make this a truly five start site.  The old facilities were ok but the new ones look much better.  We will be back later in the year to check it out.

Everything inside the caravan was ok, apart from a problem with the pump which was easily sorted.

This site is handy for getting a bus into Lancaster and that is what we did after lunch.  

After a look around the shops we had an excellent dinner in a Thai restaurant araya thai 

followed by drinks in the Stonewall Tap, our favourite pub in Lancaster.


Bad weather was forecast for today, but undaunted we set off for a walk along the canal to Carnforth.  Once there the weather seemed ok so we decided to get a train to Grange-over-Sands and had a walk along the promenade.  It did rain a bit!  Not many pics. D found a 'Happy Bench' but managed to get off it before anybody came to talk to him

We got back to the site about 4pm and the weather had improved, so D went for a walk from the site.  No beach, just mudflats, but pretty good views.

Then a night in, drinking wine and listening to the radio.  Meatballs for dinner.


We tried the mover and it worked...after a while  The journey home was uneventful.

Coming soon...

Looks like the caravan is good to go for another year so a trip further afield in a couple of weeks...Coniston or Keswick, maybe.
