It’s blustery alright. My coffee almost spilled with the van rocking and the vent cover for the fridge blew off, so I moved from Walney into Barrow and drove round looking for a quiet spot. I’d got into town and the bike cover did a runner too. I was lucky enough to get it back, but it had snapped the two bungees holding it on. After 5 minutes it was obvious it wasn’t going to go back on so I stowed it away and moved off. They’ve got bridges shut and roads closed and buildings losing their roofs and all sorts.
I finally found a quiet spot near B n Q and I can barely feel the wind here apart from the really bad gusts so at least I’ll have a peaceful night.
