An Aside – Vacation in Europe June 20-July 29

Entering Cornwall

Entering Cornwall

Because our ship is chartered for 5 weeks, we are being put off.  The company was going to fly us home for the month+ but we decided to stay in Europe and visit friends and family.  Now, Michael and I have been working and living together 24/7 for MANY months on the ship but we have not done a vacation road trip for a long time.  It will be interesting to see how we do when I want to stop for pictures and he wants to get to the next B&B for the TV and a glass of wine.

We are first headed to Cornwall, England to rent a cottage with my sister and brother-in-law.  I’ve never been to Cornwall and the other 3 haven’t been there for 40+ years so it will be relatively new experience for all of us.  After the week in Foxhole, Cornwall we are headed north to visit ship friends, the Rowdens, who live in Leeds.  From there we are back south to my sister-in-law’s so Michael can play golf and I can visit other ship friends.  I am very excited about Cornwall since it is a setting for so many good old Gothic novels I read as a kid and of course, Daphne du Maurier’s books are set here, including the famous “Rebecca”.  Off we go!
