Saturday 24 November 2012.

Up early for the ferry at 7:30, no breakfast :(  The taxi at  Los Christianos gets us to the airport three hours before our flight. Somehow the aircraft stays in the air :) At Gatwick we say goodbye to Les, who gets a train back to Nottingham. We drive home through the dark in torrential rain, eat chinese food, then take Jim to the station for his train around 7:30 pm.

It's been a rare treat to spend a week together, I'm so glad we went away. Now it's weird to be back in the UK in the gloomy November weather when a few hours ago the temperature was around 80 degrees and the sun was shining brightly. I wouldn't like to give up the seasonal UK weather permanently, even the winter can be glorious on a cold sunny day, but there's a lot to be said for a break in the sun :)
