The drive back home after our new king-pins had been fitted was excellent and somehow the front end seemed more 'grounded'.....good for another 30000 methinks.
South the following day, to visit our daughters and their families in Warwick and Camberley and then on to Devon to revisit my father's parental home and places that we had not seen for many a year.
|The Quayside at Exeter|
|Say no more! Cornish lager.|
|My Great Grandparent's home was to the right of the church, overlooking the top of the churchtower.|
|.......and 64 years on !!!!!!!|
Nevertheless, it was lovely to visit the place where I had spent so many happy sun-kissed holidays as a boy. I still remember vividly the church bells playing 'Abide with me' every evening.
|'Arts and Crafts' heaven at Coleton Fishacre.|
|Part of the garden|
Castle Drogo, another NT property, was clad in scaffolding, cluttered with building machinery and a whopping great crane, that did not enhance the property at all while it is being dramatically renovated.
|Castle Drogo in the murk!|

It was a re-occurence of the pleurisy I endured at Norwich in June. Anyway, I was only in for 10 hours and feeling much improved we completed our 5 hour drive home safely.
Not a nice way to finish what had been a very pleasant couple of days in Devon.
