Part 2 - The journey begins
Let's have a look at that happened after that lovely drive along Bournmonth Promenade
Day 2 - Tuesday the 5th July
Day 2 was a scheduled R&R (Rest and Relocate) day. So bit of a lie in, leisurely breakfast, bacon, sausages, hash browns, beans and mushrooms. Followed by toast and Marmite. I am travelling with my own 500g jar of Marmite in case the hotels do not provide it!
Although this is a rest day I am driving one of the Mercedes Sprinter Luton vans to the next hotel which is at Cookham near Maidenhead. Left Swindon hotel around 12 noon with Tiana (one of the chaperones) as passenger and arrived at Cookham by 13:30. Hotel is in very nice setting close to the river Thames. After unloading the two Luton vans myself and 3 of the hosts decided to have a 5-minute walk down to the village to get a late lunch. Fish and Chips all round and very nice it was too.
In the evening we had a team meal, which was very nice, as it was Chicken and Fish (which I don’t eat) or cheese pizza (which I have to avoid as much as possible as it gives me migraine) the chef cooked me a vegetable pasta dish.
I’ve attached some photos of the hotel and the fish ponds.
