I've written about Detours in my last few posts, and now I want to tell you about our next BIG detour. We're going to England and Wales!
We'll be visiting my dear friend Deirdre and her family in Bath. She's got three children: Orla, Lorcan and Ronan. I've never met them, and I can't wait.
Then we are going to Liverpool to see the boarding school my mom attended. If you've been visiting my blog for a while, you'll remember I wrote about her experience as a 14-year-old evacuee at the start of WWII. She and her entire boarding school were evacuated to Wales.
After visiting the school, we are going over to Wales for a few days. I want to see the places there that Mom liked so much. She had an unhappy childhood, but she described her time in Wales in idyllic terms. I'm hoping that my whole family will make a trip over there together in a few years, but for now, I can scope things out for us! First we'll fly back to New England and get to have a brief visit with my sister, Jess, her husband Terry, and our neices, Olivia and Elizabeth. Then we fly out from Boson on Monday.
So it's a two week detour from our RV road trip adventure. While we're gone, Nexus will work on our RV, making her all better for our return.
I'm not taking my computer to England, so I won't be posting while we're gone. I look forward to seeing you all when we get back in mid-September. Can you believe it will be September already? This year is flying by!
