A quick post to say “Bon Voyage” to Joyce, Mum & Dad. Joyce texted me yesterday to say the Eagles Had Landed safely after the first leg of their epic journey (OK … it was only from Stonehouse to St Albans, but when you’re in your 80s many things take on an epic quality …).
On Tuesday, all three of them will fly to Calgary (to be met by Andrew & Carly); and thence by train through the Rockies to Vancouver, where on Friday Tony & I will hook up with them, and on Saturday Graeme & Helen. Then we’re all off on our great Alaska cruise … can’t wait!
Anyway: I’m posting “Bon Voyage” wishes for their transatlantic flight now, because by the time Tuesday comes along I’ll be travelling myself: to Detroit with the Ambassador (big visit to the midwest; and the reason for the driven period at work mentioned in the previous post …)
