    That definitely needs arranging.
    Who sits where on the bus?

    Do you keep the same seat all the time, after every distillery visit, after every loo break?
    Or are we going to mix it up a bit?

    Like, every time we stop, do we do the thing where some move up one to the right, and
    some move up one to the left, to keep it interesting?

    It going to be one hell of a boring trip if it needs that to spice it up.

    You say that, but it would be even more boring if someone was sitting next to someone for what, a week or two, without changing partners.

    Some people might just get off at Keele Services.

    Edited to say, I’ve just got a bit stressed about it, worrying about whether I’ll get on with the person next to me, will I annoy them?
    Then realised that it’s an imaginary coach trip.

    If I hear a Donny Osmond record, there's a pretty fair chance I'll go into 'Mad Axe Murderer' mode .... :ninja:

    Looks lovely and peaceful unlike when we went.

    We climbed the tall stack in the middle from the other side only to find all of the tourists and cricket match going on that I mentioned in an earlier post.

    What do you mean imaginary? I've already booked the Greatrex coach and got the director of the TV programme Coach Trip interested in making a special Stafford edition.

    The two days were pretty quiet people wise. On the walk through the woods from Lynton to the Valley I saw no-one on the way out, and only a couple on the way back. The coastal path on the seaward side of the ridge (what my Old Man used to call a Laurel and Hardy path) was also quiet, although the two metre rule was a bit tricky on that one as the Corona Virus would be the least of your worries as you hurtled downward to a Newtonian doom. :eek:

    You’re pictures look stunning @BobClay of Lynton.
    I’d never heard of Valley of the Rocks.
    I’m going to google to see if there is a lovely campsite nearby.

    We stayed in a lodge at a campsite about a mile out of Lynton called Sunny Lyn holiday park. It had hard standings for campers and there was a good thai restaurant and brewery just along the road.
