We then went down to Weston super Mare to have a loom at Crosville in it's latest incarnation at the other end of the country, amazing which a legacy can provide and for Weston it's a new bus operator with lots of activity in this modest North Somerset seaside town, a lot of cash has been poured onto the seafront renovation but whilst it looks good you can't change the habits of the people and as the sun blazed the chip shops did a roaring trade and the stage and hen parties got more and more pathetic. Once again lots to see and I think that Crosville reformed was a tad better than I'd been expecting, actually I think it was all a bit better really, at least we weren't in Scotland , lots of friendly drivers and no moaning East European migrant drivers to sour the day, hurrah for all the good things in life.
We stopped off at the new Gloucester services on the M5 motorway these have been built in the style of Tebay in Cumbria and extend the art of high class local produce, landscaped buildings and great food at sensible prices although that won't extend to the fuel. Came away with all sorts from Gloucester old spot pork sausages to single Gloucester cheese oh and some Cotswolds ginger fudge, a bit to much sugar crystal and not enough goo but tasty. Some shots from Bristol to get the ball rolling, the DVD is burning and clips on Youtube this evening, remember please, please click adverts on each clip of ours you watch. Photos are that fresh the ink is hardly dry! The logo on the First Group buses is something to do with being green, guess the ride is making people sick?
