Leaving home ...

17th July and two of our lovely grand-daughters are going home to Scotland.  We’ve hired a car for a couple of days as there is a surprise for someone ...
A walk to stretch our legs after a long journey this is the Pencil with Largs behind looking across the Firth of Clyde taken from Largs Yacht Marina
Molly does not usually like the water but this day she even got her tummy wet!
The surprise - our eldest grandson Adam in his 3rd year at Glasgow University, has now rented a flat near his Uni with 2 mates ...
So his Mum (our daughter Sharon) and Dad Joe organised a surprise party for him ...
Adam was presented with a big box of ‘goodies’ to start him off in his new independent life … we had contributed household items together with instructions, like oven gloves (incase they learned to use the oven) and air-freshener for when they’ve ‘destroyed’ the bathroom for anyone else! He took it with his usual good humour!  A good lad! Joe said that he was going to make just a short speech for Adam - he said “Bye!"
Sharon and Joe taking pictures of the ...
… crowd of family and friends - the empty chair is mine as I took this picture which includes Sharon and Joe.

We travelled back to Rock n Roll, still moored in Liverpool’s Salthouse Dock the following day - it was so quiet, we missed those happy girls tremendously.

Still at Great Haywood as I write this blog catch-up ...
… the rising moon over the marina at 8:15 last evening.

And in the garden at the same time I’m taking the picture above ...
… the last of the posts which will surround the lawned area is in!  Time for a beer or two!
