This time disaster strikes as we climb the Mediterranean Steps - after three flights I am absolutely shatterred and
have to stop. We eventually finish in 12mins 20secs which is not good. Maybe the pace was too fast. Whatever.
The rest of the day is spent recovering
Today we fly to the UK.
In the evening we collapse and recover.
In the afternoon I go to Liverpool to look at a wall. My girlfriend meanwhile reports back how she had seen somebody with
a sight seeing dog. An interesting concept.
In the evening we go to see The Young Victoria - not bad.
We have a bite to eat at the Loch Fine restaurant in Knutsford which is good as always
We are about to set off for Spain shortly and for that reason I have had the car we are taking comprehensively serviced -
"please pay special attention to the Air Conditioning". When I set off for a test drive the air conditioning does not work.
It turns out that a wire has come loose.
Meanwhile in Liverpool I have unleashed a scene of mass destruction.
We drive to London via Sheffield and Chatham.
Later we eat at the Spaghetti House which has changed the menu - a big shame, no more Whitebait
The ferry leaves from Portsmouth at 8.00pm - except that it doesn't because of gales in the Bay of Biscay. We eventually set off just after 11.00pm
