'Let's us discuss what kind of plans we have for the summer season. With the economy, and gas prices being what they are, will you be traveling during the summer months or staying close to home?'
Good timing Sayre, as soon we need to sell the caravan we bought this time last year.
Sadly, Cornwall has become too far to travel, 365 miles each way and with fuel 140 per litre which is about £7 per gallon!!! Go figure! Still, we've had many years of holidaying in the far south-west of England and lots of memories (some happy and some sad).
OH with his practical head on worked out the pros and cons and I agree.
- 365 miles is too far to drive in a single journey
- folk we knew for many years and who were very good friends can now be found in the local churchyard not the pub. We lost the last of that group of friends in the past couple of years.
- We often listen to travel reports on the radio. There are now too many accident hotspots on the route we travel.
- Fuel prices rise and rise making the cost of living also rise.
- We have the two Ms and it's good to spend more time with them.
- Holidaying at Kerbstone Edge has more appeal.
- We have our memories and many, many photos. Too many places in the SW have become spoiled over the years. I prefer the SW I knew and loved.
