We were due to sail today, that is Friday but a conversation with one of the looked after kids Gran revealed that they were off to Oz for a couple of months so everything had to be completely re planned at very short notice.
We managed to reschedule our trip for Bank holiday Monday. This is hardly the best time to undertake long distance travel and so it proved. With 8 hours allowed for a 4 hour trip off we set. Initially the management was up beat, traffic little more than normal, then it changed.
