Whoops!


Drove back from Cornwall today - five hours to get to Bristol from Newquay and then 2.5 hours from there to Maidstone! On a nadgery lane in Devon we were following a very large camper van which had a little car on a towing bracket, probably to use to get into town as the camper wasn't of the size that you'd want to take into most West Country villages! Anyway - on one particular bend they ran a litte wide, the towed car ran up the bank and tipped over. The driver of the camper carried on blissfully unaware that his "runaround" was blocking the road. Nobody was hurt so those of us held up by the obstruction rolled it back onto the round rubbery things and bounced it out of the way. Photo taken by Jemma and the second shot shows one of the shirts (with me in it!) as we surveyed the wreckage prior to rolling it out of the way.

4 careful considerations:

Well! Not quite the shirt shot we were expecting, but needs must....
I'm guessing "nadgery" is a new sort of expletive?
Welcome back :-)

Kat - I'd guess he went back for the car, Plod would have been very annoyed if he'd left it there! Just had a week with the children - in a caravan at a place called White Acres which is 6 miles from Newquay, it's near Indian Queens.

"Nadgery" means narrow and winding :-)
