We left Plymouth to drive back to East Midlands airport where Don took his flight to see his Mum and sister Lisbet in Glasgow. He stayed for 4 days while I stayed with Mum again in Weston Coyney.
Mum and I went out for dinner at Spot Gate a pub restaurant where they have very old railway carriages as dining rooms, all very cosy with huge comfy chairs. I seem to remember the place many years ago it was always so busy you have to book way in advance but we were quite lucky. While I was at Mums the weather did it's usual thing, hailed again just to remind me of what I'm missing about the UK.

We bought quite a bit from the show and had to return the following day and bought even more, I think we carried so much stuff we grazed our knuckles on the ground. On the Saturday night we walked through the lanes to a restaurant to eat and have a few drinks, staggered back to the boat and quaffed a bottle of bubbly.
On the Sunday night we had booked into the Holiday Inn hotel which is quite close to the airport. John our friend came to us and loaded up all the goodies we had bought so that made things so much easier to return. The taxi was waiting our delayed flight at Murcia and bought us safely back here.
There is so much more to tell about the trip but time is so very short now.
We plan to leave Cartagena on Monday and just hope the weather will be kind to us, we are booked into Gibraltar on the 8th Of October.
Next post soon
