Last part of the journey

Our stay in Sweden finally came to an end and we crossed the bridge back into Denmark to catch our ferry home.  These are a few flowers I picked during a walk at Ishoj where we stayed for a couple of nights.
We stopped for a look around Riba on the west of Denmark before catching the ferry at Esbjerg.  We had been told it had the oldest, most beautiful cathedral in Denmark but at that time it was covered in scaffolding and surrounded by roadworks so we had a stroll along the river, some lunch and headed to the port.
The next day after landing at Harwich we headed to the New Forest for a few days of rest. Ivor and Janet were staying on a campsite nearby so we spent some time together, walking their dogs and having nice pub meals.  These flowers came from a walk from Beaulieu to Bucklers hard.
Ponies and cattle graze freely all over the Forest so we had to drive carefully as they could step into the road at any time.
A pretty feather Janet found on the path one day.
The weather deteriorated so that soon we were surrounded by water on our pitch and we spent the whole day in the camper car but we were pleased it had stayed goood for the main part of the holiday. We had only 7 days of rain in 7 weeks and now it was time to catch the ferry to France and home.
