Picked up our hire car about 1.00pm on Friday. By the time we had returned to Oakapple and sorted out the fridge and freezer it was nearing rush hour, so, hey ho, off to the Eagle for a late lunch before driving south.
Busy weekend at home, catching up with every one as well as making some attempt to get down the garden which has had nobody down it for two months! I'm sure that when we push Oakapple down some of the narrow tree lined canals the Captain sees himself as Humphrey Bogart in the African Queen. Well the effort required to penetrate to the end of the garden certainly continued the jungle theme, taking a couple of hours hacking to return it to a semblance of normality. I wouldn't have been surprised to find a lost tribe of pygmys in the long grass at the end.
Yesterday we visited our eldest daughter and the two of her offspring that were home, and today, after sorting out the last of the business that brought us home, we saw the rest of the family who were around. First our granddaughter and son-in-law, and then my brother who provided a welcome lunch. Cheers Michael. Finally home to relax on our newly discovered patio.
Planning a relaxed evening before returning to Oakapple tomorrow to continue the cruise.
