Where I stayed
Pete and Sues
Our next stop was the old Roman archaeological dig at Roxbourne
As it was nearing 4pm by now we decided to stop at a pub to wet our whistles. We headed to a secret location that Sue was heading us to. This meant driving through the 'New Forest’. This is a unique area of open scrub and trees and where animals have the right to graze where they wish. To me it seemed that the horses and cows then felt that the best place to be was on the road! They congregated on the edges of the road in groups with absolutely no intention of moving away for any car that may be passing by.
After a cool drink we stopped a short way in to the forest and stood by the Rufus Stone that commemorates the place where King William II was killed by Sir Walter Tyrell. By now it was getting quite late so we headed to the supermarket for a quick restock of supplies (beer) and some items for the BBQ. Once home we filled our glasses, stoked the fire and relaxed outside on the patio until the wee small hours of the morning. A great way to end a great day.
