A mixed day of mainly horrible wet road visibility dimmed by fine clouds from speeding vehicles with occasional bouts of bright sunshine creating rainbows dancing in the spray following cars in front of us. Lots of mad (to us islanders) traffic but no stop start queues. Made good time and are now in Penrith Premier Inn for the night. We could have driven further but I had opted for the unchangeable cheaper booking. Supper will be a curious M&S picnic in our room.
Grateful that we are here, all in one piece with the worst bit of the journey behind us. The mileage on the car passed 110000 somewhere around Exeter!
Thank you for all the gifts on the colourful stair yesterday!
