We got up early this morning so we could wash and dress before the staff at Essanjay (http://www.essanjay.co.uk/) arrived.
We handed over the keys to Gary, discussed what other things we needed seeing to on the van and then headed off along the footpath into Poole.
As usual when we go to Poole we headed straight for our breakfast in the JD Wetherspoon’s pub called The Quay (http://www.jdwetherspoon.co.uk/home/pubs/the-quay) on the Quay which has nice views out to Brownsea Island. We both had a full English and a coffee.
After breakfast we wrote a list of things that we needed from town as well as a list of things we needed to move from the van back to Dean’s mothers before we go off touring again.
We had another coffee, watched a few passenger boats set off for their cruise around Brownsea Island and then left for the town centre.
We were in two minds whether to stay another night in Poole or drive straight back to Hereford. We decided that we would head back to Essanjay’s, see when they were finished and make our decision then.
On our return we were pleased to find out that the van had passed the MOT and the habitation test was all ok it was about 4 O’clock so we decided we would head straight back to Hereford which would take us about 3-4 hours.
As it was late getting back to the campsite and our trailer was parked on our pitch we decided we would park up at the top of the back field until the morning.
It was quite eerie in the back field as we were the only ones there and as it was pitch dark. The sky was clear so we were able to see lots of stars and we could also hear a couple of owls hooting to each other.
