We survived our first British driving experience in one piece and made it to Tibberton in Shropshire yesterday (Thursday) evening. Chip drove, and stayed remarkably calm, even in the hellish traffic circles. Navigating was much more stressful than I expected, especially since sitting on the left hand side meant I automatically kept checking the mirrors, except I couldn't see anything out of them!
Today we had a relaxing day starting with sleeping in and a home cooked English breakfast. Chip slept till almost 9am which is unheard of! That driving on the wrong side really did take a lot out of him. We had a tour of the Lilleshall sports training facility later in the morning, which is amazing, both in building, scenery & training facilities. The core of the training center is a old English hunting lodge (ie mansion in the woods) with more modern facilities built around it.
After our tour, I finally got in the cross-Atlantic coaching session I've been waiting for, and found I have a lot of work to do, but am doing better than expected in some. But mostly have a lot if work to do. I expected that, but now I have a better idea of how to direct that work.
I'm falling behind in posting pictures so below are a few from today. In order: our home for the next few days, the view from the top front window (see the sheep?!), and two shots of Lilleshall.
