Recently widowed Pam takes a trip in a motor home with her daughter.

Part 1 of 3 stories by Sue Teddern about three women who take a short but eventful trip in a motorhome. Pam's story is read by Lynda Bellingham.

Pam's husband died recently. The couple had just bought a motorhome and dreamt of enjoying their retirement on the open road, but ever since his death 'The Sedona' has been parked on the driveway - too symbolic to sell, too precious to use. Pam is cajoled by her daughter into taking it for a trip along The Severn, and on the way they pick up an eccentric elderly relative. Pam is grieving, but also learning to assert herself with a daughter whose concern manifests as control.

Producer: Sarah Langan.
