Gnomey’s Travel Diary

Saturday, 23 Jun 2007

Location: Godalming, UK

MapHave arrived at yet another beautiful "minnie Mansion" set in a lovely garden (photos to come). John, Fran and the kids (Alistair, Benjamin and Mia) are all fit and well. Sat up drinking and talking until midnight (sic) and none us can believe its been 11 years between face to face discussions. Current plan is for a relatively quiet weekend on the site seeing front (boys have just about seen enough castles and churches). Might try and take them riding or for a game of golf... watch this space.

We all piled in the cars and took Ben's (Scott) remote controlled speedboat to a local lake to thrash around. It was going really well until we were chased off by some birdwatchers who claimed the boat was scaring away their "prey"...

John and I then took Alistair, Sam, Nic, Ben, Ben and Alexander (ring in) to play golf at the local public course. All had fun. I rented some clubs that were made about the same time I was born, luckliy John let me use his driver.

The girls stayed at home and drank Pims which turned into champagne when we arrived home which turned into red wine with dinner which turned into slide shows by the Heaneys and the Scotts. Sounds boring but it was actually good fun watching each other over the past 10 years or so...
