We are home!

September 11, 2016

What a wonderful trip we had.  Last night we walked to our farewell dinner. boatman2 boatman3 final-dinner-boatman final-dinner2 Most of us had packed before we left, for we had an early day today.  We saw the sun coming up over the castle sunrise-castle-last-morning It was our final luggage count, then it was on the bus and to the airport. final-luggage-call preparing-to-head-home1 robyn-and-me  We made it through security and were headed to our gate in less than one hour.  Interestingly enough they don’t post the gate number until 15 minutes before we were supposed to begin boarding, but we were in the right section so had no problems. I actually got the gate texted to me 20 minutes before they posted it at the airport!  We were in the Queen’s terminal which was appropriate. preparing-to-head-home3 queens1 queens2

We had smooth sailing, and it was a pleasant flight.  Due to the fact that some folks don’t want to fly internationally on 9-11, we had a half empty airplane, so folks got to spread out.  Many laid down and napped.  We had extra leg room in our seats, so it was a very pleasant flight, which helped, since it was 10 hours from London to Houston.

I must say, it was great to see Clay and the dogs, but I am loving this fast internet!
