Quite surprised but utterly charmed when I came home at lunchtime to find a gypsy caravan parked-up on the grass verge.
The owner explained that he and his young family spent at least 10 months each year living in the bow topped wagon.
Plenty of water was within easy reach.
Such a wonderfully romantic notion, travelling the countryside and living the gypsy life.
The wagon had decorative painted detail at the back- it didn't feel polite to go nearer for close-up shots
I spent the afternoon feeling like Toad musing in the Wind and the Willows...A life on the open road, there's nothing like it...but came back down to earth when I switched on the computer and ran a hot bath...
