Thursday September 28 - Travel Home London to Ottawa

We had a very leisurely trip out to Heathrow. I always like to use Heathrow Express, not because it is so very fast but because I can relive 50 year old memories of working on the Great Western main line - firing a Castle steam engine, Old Oak Common, Acton Yard, Hanwell Viaduct.
The flight home was long and uneventful.

We were delighted to see how our orchids had enjoyed their vacation staying with out neighbor Pat who also kept an eye on the apartment.  The flowers are amazing - thank you Pat for looking after them so well.

It was a good trip with so many good memories.
-St. Cattwg's church at Llangattock, near Crickhowell - listening to the congregation singing Canol lan at a funeral.
- the Jacques Tatiesque fun and games at Abergavenny station
- the Magic Flute and Midsummer Night's Dream at the Theatre Severn
- visits to the Welshpool and Llanfair and the Vale of Rheidol Railways
- visiting with cousin Hilary in Newport.
- meeting up with old school friends in London
But above all we have enjoyed living in Shrewsbury with its many simple delights from coracle racing to country dancing.
Shrewsbury here we come, again - next May.
