Stanley, and the fun continues. Seriously! With new crew arriving in a day or two, we got busy doing a couple of bags of laundry. In Stanley, the venue for this enticing activity is the local caravan park. And what a pretty place it is too. Right on the waterfront and spotlessly clean and tidy. You will see from the photos that with wind to cause what’s on the line to flap only in the ‘horizontal’ position, there are some safety precautions when approaching to remove said laundry.

Of course, you will see that in fact we were testing out a couple of battery-assisted bikes, picked up for rent at the very smart new homewares store in town, The Brown Dog. Run by the same enterprising chaps who own @VDL Stanley accommodation, the Brown Dog is another sign that Stanley is the place to be.

The bikes were great fun and certainly helped us get to and fro. When the chores were done there was another treat in store. The next post explains our afternoon of heritage and our evening of (more) food and wine.

By the way, the Grumpometer is still showing no reading at all so that’s why you’re not getting daily updates …. any more chirpiness and I will have to implement the Chirpometer!
