After arriving and having a walk around the site, we had a lazy Sunday afternoon with the papers. On Monday morning we walked from the site to Tittesworth Reservoir and took the smaller of the circular walks.
We only had a short walk as we visited the Three Horseshoes to meet friends for a couple of drinks before all heading back to Cali for the afternoon.

On Tuesday we did one of our favourite walks - walking from the site across The Roaches to Lud's Church. The walk was just as we remembered it, and the views were just as spectacular, but it was awful to see the blackened ground on The Roaches after last August's huge fire.

On Wednesday we packed up at Blackshaw Moor in torrential rain and headed for the Broadway Caravan Club Site in the Cotswolds. This was another site we visited when we had our first caravan - about 25 years ago.
The weather was still very wet on Thursday so we bought two Day Rover tickets for the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway. The first train from Broadway was a diesel railcar which we took to Toddington. After looking around the exhibitions and having some lunch we caught the steam train to Cheltenham Racecourse (currently the end of the line) and once they had got steam up, we took the same train back to Winchcombe. We then caught the railcar back to Broadway - the last train of the day. It was a lovely day out and highly recommended too.

A lovely week in Cali visiting two sites in beautiful walking country. Both are sites we want to return to next year.
