Just a slight contrast to the sunny picture of the Eden Project at the start of the thread...
Splendid day out nonetheless.

Thank you everyone.A8 Parts, Mike, Neil and especially Micaela. Another totally enjoyable meet. Great hotel and activities. Not forgetting Cornwall with its spectacular coastline, which we're still enjoying her in Mousehole.
It was fun catching up with everyone. Thanks again to you who make this all possible.

Arrived home last night after a few detours to visit friends in St Ives's and Exmouth. It's been a great 10days wrapped around a really well organised and most enjoyable meet. GreAt to see forum friends again and some new (to me) faces. A big "thank you" to Michaela. Mike, Neil and David for making it possible.👍
Now, I have to go and extract the Devon liquid sunshine from my carpets 🙄 . But at least it's sunny and warm in Scotland 😁

Many thanks to Michaela for showing us around, thanks to those who did the reccy'ing, and David at A8 Parts.

Drove through Dartmoor on the way there and back, stopping at The Tank Museum for a couple of hours on Friday. Stayed in Lyme Regis on Sunday night and had a walk along the beach to Charmouth on Monday, almost getting cut off by the incoming tide
