Late April: a week - ten days in Herefordshire. Ancient castles, the wonderful medieval church at Kilpeck, great pubs, etc.,etc.
May-June: Ireland for three weeks -- Ring of Kerry & birding on Great skellig, then to County Clare and the beautiful Burren and its spring flowers.

|We had plans for 5 main trips- covering about 25 sites. |
Sadly Rosie had to go into hospital in May for removal of an ovarian cyst and having just recovered from that a Mammogram showed that she had a cancerous lump in her breast.
So at the moment she is back in hospital.
We managed to get away twice.
I have to say how very helpful the Camping and Caravanning Club have been in refunding our deposits when I have had to cancel- and the private sites are holding them for future bookings.
