A reasonably steady crossing, despite the Captain's warning of moderate to rough seas, and a comparatively civilised start to the day - we were woken at 5.30 and disembarked at 6.30 but our body clocks were still an hour ahead - and we were back on home ground.
Before actually heading for home we needed to make our way north to Norfolk to see Geoff's mum and collect the car which has been housed in her garage while we have been away. We had an easy journey there from Harwich, stopping off for a Little Chef breakfast at 7.30 (which is a good time to get fast service, it would seem.) Haven't had one for years, and it was actually very good. Then the pleasure of listening to Desert Island Discs, and a stop at Salhouse for a walk down to the Broad and back. All in all an excellent start to the morning which reminded us that England and things British are pretty good to come back to!
Coffee and a catch up with Geoff's brother followed, and then a visit to Geoff's mum, who was pleased to see us and in good spirits.
We then drove the two vehicles home, and although we didn't drive in convoy managed to arrive home within two minutes of each other. Which was nice.
I plan to return to the blog when I have had a chance to absorb all that we have done over the weeks. But it is worth noting that my iPad survived and, with careful use, the gas lasted!
Now a quiet weekend adjusting is required, I think, before a new life takes over.
