Alicia and I are enjoying very much this beautiful beach. It has been a great rest! It was wonderful to see you after such a long time and to feel that time has not changed the relationship at all. Thank you so much again for all your kindnesses and very lovely Delft plate. I hope that not so many years will pass by before seeing you next time. Happy return to the US with best wishes and warm saludos.
Arrived OK – 2 hrs late but went straight to my room, a shower, and a nap. Slept about 2 hours on the flight plus 2 hours here so I am in good shape. Just had lunch – watercress soup and a sandwich and a walk. Will leave the hotel about 5:30 for the bus to Heathrow. Service on Northwest was very good.
We’ve got this far. Had a nice trip down, there were a few bad moments. Here we are in the warm sun watching Bron playing with Aussies at the beach. We’ll catch the ferry back to circular quay in a few moments. Thanks for taking us to the airport.
We are spending this holiday at a beautiful beach house on the SW coast of this lush tropical island. The trip has been marvelous and an eye-opener! In Hong Kong I saw three days of Mao Red guard demonstrations from my room at the Hilton Hotel. There was nothing South American about his – the demonstrations were dead serious and rather violent. Bangkok with its floating market on the klongs and rice paddie countryside plowed by water buffalo showed me how the people really live. Singapore reflected the British influence in its well manicured lawns and orderly streets.
Had to come back to Ely this morning to buy more food… A bear raided our campsite last night, broke open our cooler and ate half the food. :-(. Gave us a bit of a fright – sniffing around the tent but he really wasn’t interested in us. Pulling out soon.
