St Albans

Had a lie in this morning and then set off for St Albans with Pauline and Stephen on the bus. Took a stroll through the park and then stopped at the restaurant for the first of many beers for the day.From there we walked up to the old town and the beautiful old church. Stopped off ofr another beer and some lunch at one of the oldest pubs in the UK. Spent the rest of the afternoon strolling through the town and stopping off for a beer every now and then, 7 pubs in all, not bad for an afternoon. Took the bus back to Pauline and Stephen for a late dinner and chat. Great day.st_albans.jpgst_albans2.jpg

Arrival in the UK

We arrived in Dubai International Airport at 03h30 SA time. The smoking room was enough to put a smoker off for life but we found this delightful Irish Pub in the airport where smoking was allowed. I opted for coffee and Jan had a brandy and coke, it felt like the right time for a drink for him. After a 7 hour flight to London we had an hour and a half haul through customs, the longest queue we have ever seen.

Arrived at Pauline and Stephen's at aout 16h30, great to be here again. Had a BBQ that night with some of their old friends was really good.

Sunday 31 July: Had a late breakfast and even later lunch then went to a few pubs alongside the canal just down the road. Really great, people sitting along the canal bank relaxing and having a few beers.
