We went to say farewell to Claudia's parents who live across the road. Her dad handed me one of his hand made copper roses. Lovely!
Yesterday was a day of travel. An hour by car to the airport at Frankfurt, our flight to Birmingham, train to Stafford and then a cab to the marina. It all went like clockwork and we were back on the boat 2 1/2 hours after the plane touched down. There was even time for coffee and a snack at the airport while we waited for the train and at Stafford I walked across to Tesco for milk and bread and stir fry ingredients for dinner.
In the cab on the way to the marina I couldn't help but notice how much greener the roadsides were compared to Germany. Our floating home was toasty warm thanks to Barry and Carol who lit the fire and put the central heating on. The unpacking was finished in the blink of an eye and we had a cup of tea and catch up next door.
It's good to be home!
