Not again?!

So I thought driving into Boston, Lincs was bad, well the next day Aubrey suggested we go into Lincoln City!  So I did my homework to find out where we could park an 8.5m bus/motorhome and without any help found my way through the city (which has very steep hills, not fun in a 7.5 tonne bus!) to the car park it said we could park in, which was right in the centre by the castle, only to find that it was full (and small).

Again, toys out of the pram as I asked for a second pair of eyes to find somewhere we could park, and it was suggested that I should/would be fine and just look out for parking signs and spaces whilst navigating the small roads!  We ended up parking on the side of the road in a one hour free parking spot.

So in the hour we had to do a whistle stop tour of the Cathedral and a quick tour of the Bishops Palace which is an English Heritage site (we are members).  I wish we had had longer because the kids were enjoying it more than I thought, even dressing up as knights at the Bishops Palace.

Lincoln is beautiful and the Cathedral stunning.  The mind really boggles at how they built such amazing structures all those years ago.

That evening we drove north and stayed at a farm shop just south of Scunthorpe, The Pink Pig.  It was a beautiful evening and we had the place to ourselves.  Much to the delight of the kids as they had an amazing play area they would normally have had to pay to go into; ride on tractors, zip wire, rope swings over hay bales, grass toboggans and giant swings.  As I say they will be experts on play areas/parks around the UK by the end of the trip.

And finally….

Here it is, the picture with us and a Boston sign!

...that is if you can actually see it!
