What A Glorious Feeling

Honey, we're ho-ome!

We were supposed to be in London until Wednesday, for a total of 7 days. But, after two days, San Geraldo had had enough and asked if he could come home Sunday. He said I could stay in London if I wanted but I wouldn't have enjoyed it without him. Besides, the weather was a lot more depressing than I thought it would be. We have clearly been spoiled by years in Mediterranean climates!

We did have an exceptional time while we were there. We simply should have planned a four-day instead of seven-day holiday. We returned home to rain. But rain and 15C (59F) is a lot easier to tolerate than rain and 2C (35F).

The photos and stories of London are still to come. Last night, we dropped our bags at home and went to Primavera for dinner. Tynan and Elena met us there. The walk home in the warmish pouring rain was a delight. Until, that is, San Geraldo jumped into a puddle and soaked me. Elena then jumped in a puddle and soaked San Geraldo, which distracted him from me. Kids!

Once Elena and San Geraldo had enough, Tynan began his rendition of "Singing in the Rain." It would have been perfect [no it wouldn't] had it not been for his rubber-soled shoes.

  1. How wonderful to be dancing through rain in Spain on the plain and with Eliza Dolittle too!

      I only kicked up water once and then became quite adult again. Someone had to take the pictures.

  2. Hilarious that San Geraldo asked if he could please be released from his vacation! LOL
    Did you travel by train, or plane?

      We flew. 2 hours and 40 minutes. Coming home included about 1-1/2 hours of severe turbulence.

  3. Too bad your vacation was cut short. I heard the weather was not the greatest in London. Looks like everyone had fun in the rain.
    Take care.

      It was still a great time. We should have known we wouldn't enjoy the weather! The rain here is gone. Glorious sunshine once again.

  6. What ever the birthday boy wants, eh? Works for me. I don't like the cold and damp, myself. Welcome home.

  8. You know you live in the right spot when you want to go home more than you want to stay away. Sorry London didn't give you warmer weather

      We still had a great time and have decided to look at it as a planned weekend in London. But, home sure is great.

      It WAS nice to be in Soho and enjoy a couple of meals at a mostly gay restaurant. And theatre was great. But, it IS difficult to leave here.

  12. Pity the weather was out of synch with your timetable. We're due for the arrival of Spring in a couple of days time, with temps forecast to be well into double-digits - warmer than SPAIN! Nah nah na-nah NAH!

      We still managed to enjoy our time in London. You enjoy that "Nah nah na-nah NAH" as long as you can!

  13. I'm sure that jumping into the puddle made everything all better ~ I would have done the same thing too.
