Not looking for a New England – Galloway trip May 2016

Sometimes you just strike it lucky. Whilst the rain tipped down in southern England, our caravan break in New England Bay on the Mull of Galloway was quite literally cloudless for four days. Sun cream, shorts, BBQs and sea swimming. We can’t believe our luck.

Here’s a quick comic-strip / photo story

Pitched on a raised beach in New England Bay Caravan Club site – gorgeous setting, so peaceful and sheltered nicely

Met up with Jason and Debbi Miles and family, local cycling friends, who’d coincidentally booked the same site. Lovely to meet the children too.
