London & Holland April 2014 Day 1

Monty the Motorhome is at the Caravan Club site Abbey Wood, London. He is quivering with excitement as today is the beginning of his first foreign outing. Well obviously the foreign bit doesn't start today, but the road trip does.

We are spending a couple of days in London, catching up with family. Rachael has come over from Norway and tomorrow she's off to a Gary Barlow concert with Ruth. More in tomorrow's post.

The journey down was uneventful, but straightforward. No queueing, unlike the last time we came to London. We completed the journey in about three and a half hours, going anticlockwise on the M25.

What a pleasant site. Well laid out and very spacious. We certainly prefer it to Crystal Palace.

After sorting ourselves out we took the train to central London. Abbey Wood to London Bridge by British Rail is about 25 mins, then a short hop to meet Rachael at Waterloo. It is three months since we saw her last, so good to see her looking healthy and happy.
We had a bit of a walk along the South Bank, before a coffee break. Then on to South Kensington to meet up with James. We had a bit of time to kill, so were a little cheeky by going to one of the hotels and sitting in their lounge for an hour. Nice to rest the tootsies.

The approach to The London Eye. Easter is coming up, hence the carrots in the trees - for the rabbits.

Met up with James - good to see him as well, but only a week since we last saw him on Mothers Dat. Evening meal at The Hilton in the Society restaurant. Super food at super prices, but with a Taste card it was half price and affordable.

Back to the campsite quite late as it is the other side of London from Kensington
