London Calling - 25th March 2017
Emirates Air Line - a cable car crossing the Thames.
So I can now report that February & March so far have been no less hectic than the previous few months - 58 hours in one week is not what I had in mind
when we returned from Greece... Things have calmed down a bit now though, and two weekends ago we had an enjoyable stay in London, primarily for the CA Med
Section seminar where Ann made a presentation on MyCA, CAptain's Mate and comms aboard but also a bit of sightseeing and trips down Memory Lane:
Last time I flew Emirates it was slightly more luxurious - A380 Business Class...
Perhaps we'll stay here next time...
St Katherine Docks, a regular lunchtime venue when I worked in London - from this window we watched a shag and a fight - the former catching fish and the
latter a squabble amongst coots...
Last weekend we had a whistle-stop trip to Devon & Cornwall: to Plymouth to deal with some paperwork for Pipit and on to Falmouth for
some 'research'. We stayed overnight at the ever beautiful Meudon Hotel where on Saturday morning
Mark gave us a guided tour of the stunning grounds & gardens he now maintains. Penny and her trio of Springers also joined us on our ramble down through
the gardens to Bream Cove, the Meudon's private beach. We then pushed on to St Mellion to celebrate
Linda's birthday - a lovely relaxing afternoon. Sunday morning saw us on the road again, this time not far to Gunnislake for lunch with friends - it was good
to 'reach out' and 'touch base' Robert - do bring your flagpole next time so I can run something up it... Good to see Myrtle too - brought back memories...
Although our visit south was brief it was great to catch up with friends - hopefully our next visit won't be so fleeting. So there it is - short & sweet
- the next update may be more poignant...
