My understanding is that you some sort of Tooth doctor, why are you traveling. My Wisdom tooth extraction meant I traveled to Mecca not the other way round.
It's going to bloody POUR.First holiday - time off this year. Camper van packed heading for Hadrian's Wall tomorrow for a couple of days walking then over to the Northumbrian coast for five more days of walking Bamburgh Castle Holy Island and Berwick upon Tweed finish off with couple of days walking the Cheviots. As long as it stays reasonably dry i,ll be happy.

The usual trip to France was cancelled so we booked late for a week in the Lake District. The current mrs_mush had never been there, whereas it was my old stomping ground in my teens. We had low expectations about the weather (that's always the key to happiness with a Lake District holiday) and would have settled for just fine drizzle instead of the usual persistent rain.
As it was it was glorious.View attachment 506322
All B&Bs showing no vacancies, if you hadn't booked anywhere to eat in the evening you'd be lucky to find something. Did a few decent walks, nothing too strenuous.
We stayed in Keswick and after we'd come back from a day out via Bowness, the current mrs_mush offered an opinion:
"I see now the difference between the North Lakes, and the South lakes"
"And what is that oh light of my life, the geology, the flora, the fauna?"
"Nope, in the North the visitors wear Rab, Arc'teryx, Berghaus, Northface and decent boots, whereas in the South the visitors wear football shirts and trainers"
Gave that a like, as the holiday sounds just up our street too, but it must have been a bit of a pisser having the car smashed into. Hope you’re now sorted.We had a nice week's staycation in late Septemberin a rented cottage in (Charlestown of) Aberlour on Speyside. weather stayed reasonable (for northern Scotland at this time of year). The nipper had a conveniently located playpark near the old station building. Plenty of walks around the area suitable for wife, boy and dog. Had a whisky tasting and discovered the Glenfarclas of which I really recommend the 10 for a good balance of cost/taste. Self catering was a cinch due to shops in easy walking distance and some good takeaways for when we fancied it. Had a nice meal and a couple of pints at the Mash Tun in Aberlour and thoroughly recommend the Salt Cellar in Lossiemouth for seafood. All in all a good holiday apart from getting rear ended by a twat who was not paying attention.
The biggest regret on the holiday was that the nearby Keith and Dufftown Railway was closed due to Covid-19 as my boy loves trains and would have really enjoyed riding this heritage line.I

Not if the Welsh Gov keep locking down. We normally hideaway at my mates place in Llanberris for the Pagan Festival. Decided to book a place in Marizion Cornwall instead. It means parting with my hard earned instead of having a freebee.I've been reading up on a touring route in Wales they're calling the Snowdonia 360.
Follows the North and West coastline, then cutting East inland on the Southern Edge of Snowdon and back up North.
I'll be giving that a spin in springtime.
