Cali has been to Parke, Haytor and Knightshayes

We've had a couple of day trips this weekend to get used to driving Cali and enjoy her as a day vehicle.  It also gave us a chance to see what we need before our first camping trip next weekend.

Yesterday we visited Parke, a National Trust parkland near Bovey Tracy, with lovely river walks. There was quite a lot of parking (free for NT members) and it was great to pop the kettle on for a cup of tea.  After lunch we decided to drive over Dartmoor and went to Haytor.

The weather was fabulous and we walked up to the rock and took this photograph to show Cali on the car park.  There are several car parks along the road with good access.

A photo of Cali just before we took the chairs out to sit and enjoy the views.

Today we've visited Knightshayes, a National Trust house, gardens and parkland near Tiverton. There was lots of parking (free for NT members) and had a lovely walk through the gardens and woods, which were so pretty with the spring flowers.

Cali is home!

We collected Cali this from the dealer this afternoon and just had one small hitch during the handover - the registration number given to me last week was different to the one on the vehicle!  I borrowed the dealer's computer and phone to contact the CMC insurance department who were very helpful, changed the details and emailed me a new Certificate of Insurance straight away.

The rest of the handover went well and we brought her home - she's fabulous!

We've spent a few hours 'playing' this afternoon and giving guided tours to the neighbours!

Cali is in Exeter

We've had an email from the dealer to say Cali has arrived in Exeter this morning - she's all in one piece and is to the correct specification.

The workshop are working on her this afternoon and the valeting department will polish her on Tuesday - ready for us to collect on Wednesday afternoon.  Six more sleeps.

Cali is in Kent

We visited the dealer this morning for an update and were told that Cali is in the Importer Compound in Kent.  Hopefully she will reach the dealer next week and we've arranged to collect her after the Easter holiday on Wednesday 19 April - only 13 more sleeps!
