And wisdom must prevail.

Yesterday morning I realized it would be wise to come home . Fortunately my trusty travel agent was able to find me a flight today . This virus seems to have spiralled in the last few days . It is crazy ! Heathrow this morning is very busy but Brenda , who flew Westjet out of Gatwick yesterday says that airport wasn't that busy . Know one really knows what is happening or will happen in the next while.

London has been good . We were able to do a few tourist things , a boat trip on the Thames , a wander in Trafalgar Square , the Eye of London and the British Museum . Yesterday I was able to get a ticket for the matinèe performance of Come From Away and enjoyed it thoroughly. What a great play ! I was actually in tears at several points .The cast , the music and the touching reality of the people involved was beautifully presented.

I also spent time in Westminster Abbey . What an amazing place . I had forgotten how magnificent it is.

But then it was time to go .

Glad you have enjoyed the blog ... well some of you have said that .

I am now in Toronto waiting for my flight to Regina . It has been a long day and I suspect I shall sleep all the way home . Looking forward to my own bed , kitchen and Regina ...and you of course.

Hope all is well .

Welcome home!
I'm so relieved you are safely home. Finding your favourite foods may be a challenge if my quick stop to forage in the local grocery store is an indication. No bananas or potatoes. Didnt even check the tp. London is a magnificent city. I'm sorry you had to leave early. But it was the right thing to do in these times. And you made good use of your time. I hope you stopped at the British Library for a quick look.
