Rob and Mary kindly drove us to Manchester Airport, about an hour from Caldy. We had the best time with them. A flight to Heathrow and then onto Vancouver ensured where we were met by our very good friends, Lori and Wayne Henderson.
We left Heathrow about 50minutes late due to a ‘technical malfunction’ (it’s how everything with airlines is explained) of disengaging the passenger walkway from the aircraft. The plane landed only 20 minutes later than the scheduled time, however, another ‘technical malfunction’ this time with the baggage carousel saw us exit the building 75 minutes after landing.
All that faded into the background when we hit the road as conversation flowed and drizzly rain began. We loved the coolness after England’s ‘heatwave’! We are being treated like royalty in all ways.
