Fifty Six Days.....Gone!

Tomorrow we move on from Suffolk....
We have been in Suffolk for fifty six days and now those fifty six days are gone......
We can't believe that our two month stay in this part of the country is now over...... the time has really flown by.
What has helped of course in making the time fly by was the brilliant weather that we have all enjoyed this summer.....
One of the reasons I have not been posting on the blog as often as I have in the past is because I have been enjoying myself  so much..... If truth be told I would rather be out riding my bike in the good weather than sitting at the computer hitting the keys.......

During the latter part of our stay here my friend Peter Calcutt was also visiting the area and we met up a couple of times for a bike ride..... I always enjoy meeting up with Peter and what can be better than a cycle ride.....a natter with a mate.....and a coffee and cake stop........

Obviously in the time spent in the county Anne and I have visited lots of different interesting places and to make up for my fewer blog posts I will be telling you more about our stay in Suffolk over the quieter winter period.......

So where are we heading tomorrow...?
We are going to spend a couple of weeks in the Surrey hills/North downs so I can do some cycling in that area......
As a youngster I used to spend a lot of time cycling from my then home in Feltham and heading for places such as Dorking.....Leatherhead etc.....
One of my regular rides used to be out to Box Hill and back. I have not ridden up Box Hill for well over fifty years so it is about time that I rode up the hill again.......

Reflection on my Summer.......

Yes bike rides are good for chatting and so easy to miss the turn off when the conversations good. Enjoy yourself in the Surrey area. We stayed at Horsham a few years ago when we visited Wisley RHS. I didn't ride much but we enjoyed the area.

@Dave
Our site is just a couple of miles from Wisley RHS.
The last time I visited Wisley it was on a day trip from Feltham Hill Junior School when I was about ten years old......

It was Horsley CCC we stayed at not Horsham.

@Dave
Aaahh! It did cross my mind that Horsham was a bit of a distance from Wisley.... The Horsley CCC is where we are currently.......
