    To Heathrow day 68 Fri 29 Jun

    June 29, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Breakfast at 8.30am and away from Riverside Lechlade just after 10am. Drove to Bourton on the Water but the place was too large so continued on to the pretty Lower Slaughter. Lucky to park as someone left a roadside space as we entered town. Walked a short way along the Warden’s Way then wandered around the village. Beer in the pub garden. Left about 12.45pm for a 50 odd mile drive to return the car to Avis in Northrop Road in Heathrow. However the traffic around Oxford was horrendous. Followed a day tour bus going to London in the right hand lane saving maybe half an hour as the traffic was practically stationary for about ten miles. Just as well as we arrived at the car return at 3.20pm. Return went smoothly, photographed the exterior of the car and odometer. We drove 4,975.4 miles in the hire car. Shuttle bus to Terminal two where we queued to obtain the VAT refund credited to my credit card. I successfully obtained a cash refund for one Oyster card from a machine as the travel credit was under ten pounds (by seven pence), but not the other as the travel balance was ten pound and sixty pence. Drank our water and went through security where Yvonne’s arm set off the security and she got the full body scan and metal detector treatment. Plane left Heathrow T2 about 10.20pm.Read more

    Cotswold Trail - Lower Slaughter

    August 2, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 79 °F

    Slaughter = Corrupton of the Anglo-Saxon word meaning "slow growing berry." Took a 2.5 hour walk on the Cotswold trail through upper and lower Slaughter.
