Flew into Luton then caught the train to London Bridge. The same train went to Gatwick - must remember that, it could be useful one day. Walked over the river and up to Cannon Street to get a PAYG phone, then into Macdo to scrambles and to use the free wifi. Which was no longer free. Swiz.
Still the phone works ok and Android rocks.
Steve arrived, we've known each other since 1980. That's a long time now. The meeting at Grove went ok. The folk are super.
Next day train to Bath. It's hot and sunny. The English Patient came for afternoon tea. He plans another cycle escapade passing through Bordeaux. Yes ! Come all !
