Friday July 21stWe drove Morag to Cara Motorhomes today to trade her in for a replacement vehicle. Mirabel, our new motorhome, has all three of the features that we felt were lacking in Morag; a fixed bed (so we don't have to make it up every night), outside storage (so we don't have to bring all the wet stuff inside) and a more powerful engine (so we don't have to change down to first when on a hill).

Our first trip in Mirabel was to Warwick Folk Festival. We loaded her up a couple of days before and drove to Warwick arriving at lunchtime. We were offered hard-standing a s rain had been forecast, accurately as it turned out! We set up, had a sandwich and went to explore the festival site.
Over the next few days we saw lots of different acts. Some of our favourites were Spooky Men's Chorale, Granny's Attic, Rob Halligan, Daisybell, Tiltson and Lowe, Jez Lowe and the outstanding harmonica player Will Pound.
