Cheddar - Easter 2016

We were both so looking forward to our now annual trip to Cheddar because not only we were catching up with the regular Easter gang (now known as the Cheddstockers!) but we were celebrating Mike's 50th birthday too!

We left home at what felt like the crack of dawn (6:30am!) to get up to our motorhome dealer in Somerset for Bessy's first habitation service (which thankfully she passed with flying colours!).  They provided us with a courtesy car so we spent the morning out and about locally before heading to Cheddar Bridge Touring Park to pitch up for the long weekend.  We spent the evening with friends and family, who were also staying on the site.

Good Friday was a glorious day, couldn't have asked for more.  Mike and I put on our walking boots and enjoyed a lovely walk along the river and around the Cheddar reservoir.  Along the way we were lucky enough to hear a woodpecker, a skylark and a bitterne.  We also spotted frogspawn for the first time in years.  The spring lambs were all happily bleating away and the reservoir paths were full of dog walkers enjoying the warm sunshine.

Later that day the rest of the gang arrived and once pitched up we all sat outside catching up with them and getting to know the newbies.  We all spent that evening in the pub!
