Our Travel blog
Although we both slept well and had a lay in we still vented some basic frustrations this morning. Firstly the power supply in Mavis is acting oddly, the 12V supply seems to be temperamental and we're having doubts about the leisure battery - although its too early and we're too technically incompetent to know exactly what, if anything, is wrong. Secondly the confines of living in a space smaller than most kitchens requires mutual understanding and a degree of empathy we need to adapt to. For example if one of us is standing at the sink the other is essentially trapped at whichever end of Mavis they happen to be in. A sort of dance then occurs as we squeeze around - only for the person to realise they've forgotten some essential item and the dance starts again in reverse while they retrieve an errant sock or whatever and then the dance starts again.
Such is life on the road and after clearing the air we escaped into the wide open Kent countryside for a circa 9 mile hike, following part of the Crab and Winkle Way - a disused railway line running between Canterbury and Whitstable - before tracking off left to dip in and out of the Big Blean Walk - a 25 mile circular walk, then cutting in on an old road across Blean Wood Nature Reserve and into Rough Common and thence home to Mavis who immediately seemed spacious and homely.
