More churches. This time Winchester Cathedral. You don’t have to have a religious bone in your body to appreciate these buildings. As soon as you walk into them you are overcome as to how quiet they are and how big they are. Again we were in early to miss the school excursions so no kids.
Then to a working flour mill in the main street.
Then to see King Arthurs round table.
After leaving Winchester we headed south to Lyndhurst. We stayed here in 2007 in what we think is the best B & B in the UK. We were happily riding along when I swore at Olga to get around the bloody corner. Flat front tyre. At least we weren't speeding. We had to ride a mile or so to find a spot to get off the road. Glad we were on 3 wheels.
The AA, UK’s NRMA came to the rescue. The recovery man got us very frustrated trying to find a tyre repair place. In the end I took his phone off him and talked to a tyre place in Southhampton. Told them what we needed and job done.
About $50.00 and a tip for a few pints and we were on our way again.
We got to our B & B and decided to stay 2 nights as there is a swap meet (autojumble) at Beaulieu Motor Museum. We just had to go. It was a bit overwhelming as to the amount of stuff for sale. Not too many bargains in my eyes.
Then onto Sammy Millers Motorcycle Museum. A MUST VISIT.
We then went on a scenic ride through the New Forest which has lots of wild ponies.
Back to Lyndhurst for a pub tea and to bed early.
Heading further west tomorrow.
All is going well.
