Paul and I both felt a bit wobbly after being on the ship for so long. It took time getting used to the land but we finally felt level ground beneath our feet. Bath is our home for a week while we wait for the van to arrive. We enjoy the cozy home of Paul’s parents, Lynda and Derek. Nick, Paul’s brother, is there also and we share many nice meals together. I love Lynda’s cooking. Paul and I enjoy running and walking on the canal. Fall color is still reflecting from the trees.
We are in England on the 5th of November which is Guy Fawkes day or Fireworks night or Bonfire night as they call it in various different places. We enjoy the celebration in Bath on a cold evening.
The van finally arrives and although I will miss the city of Bath, its time to move on to the farm. Radford Mill farm is just outside of Timsbury. We arrive and find a nice place to park the van on top of a hill but its on a slope and we will have to move it soon enough. There are many people who live and work here and some are wwoofers like me. I’m excited to get my hands in the dirt and be a member of this small community. I am finding England pleasant and even the rain has some charm. Maybe a bit less mud would be alright.
