31st August 2008: Last leg of the journey home

The overnight temperature had fallen sharply, so we woke to a heavy dew outside and a thin fog, but we were up and away by ten past eight and for once there were no accidents (despite the normal number of lunatic drivers on the motorways)
We made good time and reached home for half past one, even though we had two long breaks for a tea break and lunch on the way.
Looking back on the holiday we had mixed feelings, certainly the weather had been pretty poor for much of the time, but against that we had had some good days, enjoyable meals and pleasant visits to National Trust properties: while it hadn't been optimum, it hadn't been a disaster either, as we say in Yorkshire: "It were fair to middlin'"
