Today was a driving day. Only three hours but unfortunately due to road works, we came to a complete stand still for 30 minutes on one highway. Just before we got there we dithered about getting off and trying a different route but thought ‘how bad can it be?’ Well, we soon found out!!
You know that thing they call ‘sod’s law’ well …….. just before we hit the stoppage I said to Si that at the next rest area we should stop so that I could use the loo (I know, too much information). Anyway, I had no sooner uttered the immortal words and we came to a stop. Isn’t that just your worst nightmare! What to do? Well as luck would have it I had a very substantial plastic bag in the car (Dot, it was the one from Wilson’s Leather) so if the worst happened then I knew I had something to fall back on.
I was anxiously looking for the next rest area and there it was …………. closed! We drove on to the next exit and came upon a petrol (gas) station and in we rushed, only to find that almost all of the people stuck with us on the highway had found the same place too. There was a big queue for just one women’s and one men’s loos. In the end, the women were using the men’s too. What a nightmare!
Anyway, as we don’t have any new pictures for today we thought we would use this opportunity to post some of the pics that didn’t make the first cut!! Enjoy!
Just realised I missed a few out, so the first ones are out out order!
