Wednesday, October 5
Sadly, today is the day we head home. We’ve been gone almost 3 weeks. In some ways it feels like we have been away for twice as long, yet in other ways it seems like we just arrived in the UK a few days ago.
We’ve had a great holiday & made a lot of memories that will last us a lifetime. It may take me that long to sort through all of he photos we took. If we invite you over to see some “slides” of our trip you’d better bring your pajamas ’cause it might take a few hours to get through them all.
We took a commuter flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. More photo ops! We’re tired but happy.
I’m not exactly certain of our route but I believe the photo below is of the eastern shoreline of Southern England in the Flamborough / Bridlington area as we were getting ready to fly across the English Channel. We hope that someday we can take a driving tour around the perimeter of the county. But this is the last time we’ll see the UK for a while.
One last thing before we “sign off”. Catherine & I both really enjoy watching the TV show “Rick Steves Europe” on PBS. On our last few trips we have purchased his guidebooks for the areas we have travelled to. These books are excellent! The information they provided added so much to what we got out of our trips. If you are planning a trip I recommend you take his guidebook along with you.
Looking forward to catching up with you soon!
Now it’s back to “auld claes & porridge” for us. This is an old Scots saying meaning old clothes & porridge – the holiday is over, now it’s time to go back to work & everyday life.
