The last time we visited Coasters we had seating no problem, but this time it was very full with no seating available and a wait for tables. After break we headed back via Rabley heath and Codicote where the road down to Codicote from the heath has some quite fabulous views. From Codicote we headed to Hatfield via Ayot St Peter. These roads are a steady climb all the way and everyone seemed to deal with them OK. There were a couple of stops, one to take in the arts & crafts church in Ayot and another to give directions on a fast, busy road.
By the time we got back to Hatfield there were smiles all around.
