Jane, Cathy and Jeff arrived safely in London and then proceeded to take possibly the most scenic route from London Heathrow to Dover. Now typically the drive takes about 2 hours. I know that they got the car around 10am and then arrived at swimmer beach around 2pm. I don’t think I will get the full story about what happened. They are sticking with the story that the Garmin led them astray.
Katie’s flight was delayed out of MN causing for another sleepless night for me as I was on the phone with her until 1-2am and then Jane called around 6am to tell me that Katie was delayed. I now know Katie is somewhere in route to our comfy new home in Walmer.
Upon arriving at our new digs, the 3 amigos went in search of food. That was 3 hours ago. Turns out that they have again misplaced themselves. Thankfully there is a map in the house and I think I gave them the right directions. (Note: I stayed back because I was pretty rank from my swim this morning and I wanted to be here in case Katie arrived).
Today’s weather brought in a good thunderstorm. Here I was talking about the glorious weather and it goes and rains on us as soon as the weekend comes. Rumor has it that this is supposed to be the worst day, so we’ll see.
I’m sure that this evening will be an early one once Katie arrives as I know all the crew are a little jetlagged. Plus I’m sure that the 3 amigos have already partaken in some of England’s liquid refreshments. And who wouldn’t when the cider is SO GOOD!
Rumors on the beach is that some swimmers will go out Monday. I’ll know more after talking with Reg tomorrow.Tags: English Channel Swim
