Day out to Coventry

We were up early as Terry and Karen were arriving at 9.30am. It was a nice day and we really wanted to go cruising with them but because they had the car and we had to watch the waste tank and diesel we decided not to. Instead we thought we would go to Coventry and while we were there do some geocaching to get us walking round the city. We jumped in the car and arrived at 11.30am.
The first thing we did was walk round the ruin cathedral which is now a memorial to the blitz in the Second World War. We then did a geocache and found it by one of the churches. After going round the church the girls could not avoid going to look at the shops and we ended up eating in Debenhams.. We did another two geocaches, but never did find them, but it did take us round a nice market.. We then went to the Transport museum which is just one of the best we have been round. They had a beach and surf expedition on and it showed the old to the modern day camper van.. We came back to Derwent6 via the large Sainsbury's and we got all the heavy shopping, like cans, fruit, and jars and of course wine.... We then got ready and drove to The Barley Mow at Newbold and enjoyed their steak deal of any two steaks and a bottle of wine for twenty pounds.. It was a great end to a perfect day...
