Back to Glastonbury

On Friday 30th July we picked up the van, with newly-fitted clutch and decided to push on as far as we felt able. The unscheduled stay in Barnstaple had put our plans back a few days and we needed to start heading towards Scotland. The van performed well and a little while later we left Devon and arrived at Glastonbury in Somerset, not a great distance from the site of the festival we had visited a little over a month earlier. The Isle of Avalon campsite was our home for the next three nights, and we went up to the top of the Glastonbury Tor to watch the sun go down on the Sunday evening. The Glastonbury Abbey Festival was on that weekend, so we heard bits of Van Morrison on the Friday and saw a glimpse of Jools Holland on the Sunday. Saturday’s performance was by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, who we saw rehearsing while we were visiting the Abbey on Saturday afternoon, and we were able to enjoy much of the accompanying fireworks display from the campsite later that night.
