Touring the UK
17 August 2010 | Glasgow
So, we arrived in the UK, and have had a wonderful couple of weeks meeting up with as many UK friends as possible before heading off to Greece [for those who didn't know, boat unavailable until end of this month, so our trip starts in Greece, rather than Mark sailing it back to Jersey and starting there]
Overnight ferry was great as we had a good night's sleep before breakfast with the Haywards and lunch with the Denyers. Camping and custard fights the order of the week before heading off to Atlantic College for my [whisper] 20 year reunion. I didn't even swim in the Bristol Channel when I was a student so I don't know what I was trying to prove this time round. Whilst I was in Wales, Mark and the kids hit legoland, before heading down to Haywards Heath to see colleagues, and to meet baby Alexander. Then we went to Ledbury for the Big Chill music festival with Jess and the boys and onwards and upwards to Glasgow. Ruby (our car) was so heavily laden that it was touch and go as to whether we would make it up the hill to Scotland but she did us proud and we are now celebrating Lochy's 6th birthday, before I fly back down to Southampton (bad planning on my part) for my SSB radio course.
