Day 79! Home

We are home!

We are home!

So, we are home, our adventures are at an end.

Our flight was uneventful and we arrived home to a beautiful sunny, hot day.

We would like say a big ‘thank you’ to all of you who have faithfully followed our great adventure. Thank you to all those who left comments and let us know that we were not just here talking to ourselves. Our champion commenter was Nat (my Twilight buddy) who left a comment most days! Another ten points to you Nat for not getting bored with our gibber gabber. We had over 6,000 views of the blog, many, many more than we ever expected.

A big “thank you” to Carol and Allan for taking care of the homestead while we were away enjoying ourselves and another big “thank you” to Sue and Tim for taking us to and collecting us from, Heathrow. It was so lovely to see familiar faces when we landed.

We’ve met so many lovely people along the way and we look forward to the next time when we all meet again. So, until then, “it’s goodnight from me and it’s goodnight from him.” That will mean more to the Brits than to the Americans, so just so that you don’t feel left out, here’s a little video for you so you understand what I’m talking about.

So, until we meet again, ‘thanks’, and ‘goodbye’, it’s been a blast!

  1. YAY!! At least I succeeded at something in my life!! ha ha!! Loved every minute of the blog! I’ll miss checking it daily and living vicariously through your adventures!! Glad you made it home safe and sound. Till next time xx (love the goodbye’s in every language!!!)

  2. Welcome home to you both , and just wanted to say how much i have enjoyed following you on your adventure. I loved all of the photographs and enjoyed your daily news which was written with such knowledge and wit. You have been educating me along the way.Hope to see you soon. xx

  6. Hey there Sandra and Si,

    Thank you for being such wonderful teachers. I’ve learned so much about the geography of the US, especially in my own back yard. We thoroughly enjoyed your visit with us. And I thank you for listening to to JB’s “views” on everything political…I know, he had a captive audience 😉

    Can’t wait to see what your next great adventure will be! xx
