British motorhomes are much smaller than American ones, and a bit more expensive considering what you get. I only snapped one photo, but you get the idea.
Most have 4 cyl engines and standard transmission. A typical American motorhome would be far too expensive to operate in the UK or Europe, although you do see the odd rare one that has been imported.
Driving on the other side of the road. Getting used to it from a passenger perspective, but still not confident enough to drive in a city. The countryside and villages I'd be fine though.
Then we met Helen and Tony's daughter Kelly, with her son Rorie, and boyfriend Paul. We went to a little pub called Uncle Tom's Cabin and had a glass of traditional Somerset cider. The general term for this cider is "scrumpy" cider, which refers to a smaller brewed local cider, that is typically quite strong, and still cloudy looking. Interesting drink, but not something I would order on a regular basis!
This is the one we tried.

Uncle Tom's Cabin pub dates back to 1861.
Then we went to an all you can eat curry house down the road. It was really good, but it's easy to eat too much...I don't think I need any breakfast today!
Had some good news a couple of days ago that our friend Steve is back home from the hospital. Hope it stays that way!

For those of you wondering about the Australia contest, we really don't know because they haven't announced the winner! But we don't think it was us...they had said they would contact the winners last week, and we haven't heard a thing. And they say they won't announce the winner or the nine finalists until the winner has signed all the appropriate paperwork. Thanks for all you help and support...it was fun doing it, but I don't think we'll ever enter something again that takes so long. Felt like it kind of dragged on for a while!
Reader Chris suggested we have a contest for you to guess where we're going next. Problem is, we haven't yet booked it so it's not written in stone yet. Should be over the next couple of days though. But you can go ahead and guess anyhow. One guess per person please, and we'll tell you if anybody guesses correctly! Don't have anything to offer as a prize right now though, so it's just for fun!
