Having spent the last four weeks in England we are now back in Marmaris and I must say the sun is very welcome. The UK weather was mixed but generally dry and the autumn colours in the trees were a nice change.
During our time in the UK we caught up with various members of the family and a number of friends. (Some of you are featured in the photos!!). Our travels took us to the Cotswolds for several days with my Mum; across to Chelmsford for a reunion with friends we hadn't seen for nearly eighteen months; Worthing to Bridget's family; London to meet Bridget's daughter, Helen; and, a host of other local calls. We saw most of the family but apologise to those we missed.
There was also quite a bit of work to be done on our flat and at the last minute we had to abandon ship with work on the boiler only partially finished
We are now settling back on the boat which seems rather small compared to the space we have been used to in the flat - not to worry as the weather and fresh air are ample compensations.
I really enjoyed being back in England. As Peter said, the autumn colours, especially in the Cotswolds were really beautiful and we had great fun walking through the woods, kicking the crispy leaves. On a walk near to home we were delighted to see the giraffe in the zoo park.
I was so glad that we were able to meet up with Helen as she has since joined her new ship and has sailed far away, not due to return until April. Chris and his girlfriend, Estefania made a flying visit from Madrid and it was really good to see them too.
As it was half term, we were able to spend some time with Peter's granddaughter, Cathleen, which was great
I was glad to see the Christmas fare in the shops and was able to stock up on puddings and custard, stuffing and mincemeat. I decided not to risk taking crackers on the plane but at the check in desk, we were told that we could take an unopened box of 12 in our hold luggage but it was too late by then. Never mind, we have Santa hats and tinsel!!
