California Road Trip Scotts Valley, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel-By-The-Sea.
Our first three days on our California road trip, we based ourselves in Scotts Valley, because on the map it looked like it was close to Santa Cruz, Monterey and Carmel-By-The-Sea. It wasn’t close enough to the last two and we weren’t impressed with Santa…

A visit to Ightham Mote a 14th Century Manor House.
We joined the National Trust today. We have been members before, so thought we would give it another go. It cost us £99 for the two of us for a years membership, which is not bad when one considers how many National Trust historic houses, castles, mills,…
