No-one was Keen to get up when the alarm went off at 7:30 for some reason?? So I sat in bed and read quietly till 8 then progressively got more insistent on movement and getting out of bed by 8:30am.

We had a nice dinner back at the hotel (didn't arrive home until 8pm!). Then we had our own 'Water-gate' saga in Washington.
