Shed draggers R us

Our oldest friends,Val and Alan's van on the left and the Caxton Crew abode on the right, Clampettville...

This is our first full day in the land of the South Peoples, aka Suffolk.   We arrived yesterday afternoon after a little diversion from the planned route that saw Joe dragging the 'shed' along single track lanes for a number of miles - surprisingly, it being MY FAULT , we were rowing before we had even got the bit where we put the awning up... and that is a compulsory punch-up for many couples!

Anyway, we are pitched just outside the picherscew village of Polstead and this morning after walking the dogs I went and had a look round.

First point of interest, The Cock Inn

Second point of interest - Dogs welcome ( this is especially for our antipodean followers who bemoan the lack of civility in Australia to man's best friend  - see how it is done here folks..)

Typical Suffolk cottages, cob walls, i.e. mud, and a thatched roof
Add village green, village pond and village hall plus community shop and Post Office, oh, and lots of income to live here, lovely.

Hi Lesley
Snap, been there done that, was it the sat nav?

My parent's marriage disintegrated over the course of a camping holiday.... What is it about them, that makes loving couples want to stab each other?

O I wish....I will post some non dog friendly signs on the blog, pretty easy really as there are no dog friendly signs.

Hi Dot
No, it was the driver, but don't tell him because he, naturally, thinks it was the co-pilot...

Hi Lisa
I think perhaps things might have been going awry before the camping holiday maybe...
Joe and I are somewhat volatile anyway so caravanning doesn't exacerbate things -- anything does.. ha, ha
