Big catch up day and the laundry was in full use, cases unpacked sorted and repacked as we have 3 days here, drove down to Stamford University , then it was the last ride to return the bikes. Paul and Kim rode up to the skyline drive and back to SF to meet up with the rest, all ok with bike return, time to party!!! Lots of txts from family and friends, lots of champagne etc and witnessing the wonderful art of Russ J and boys making the best paella in this huge pan bought from our trip to Spain. It really is a work of art, patience, time and plenty of liquid refreshments. They went to so much trouble, had made a big poster of their photos of the years of knowing us and we had a truely wonderful evening, very special friends and a wonderful welcome to the sixties for Russell. Russ is Russ Johnson and Russell is Russell Glass in case you are confused and I have totally stuffed up the pins on the map...sorry. This was a great ending to this dream of Russells, so wonderful to have all his children with him on this ride and his birthday. The first holiday with them all for nearly 30years. ending with a very funny cab ride home.
