A flying visit to London to attend a funeral of a friend who occasionally visited us in Venice. Also a quick run through the National Gallery. Met some friends in Wandsworth, back to Dublin. A very non-exhausting visit – no shopping – few expenses – easy transport connections – no delayed flights – all journeys should be so easy.

Our hosts in London also have a place in Venice and he is a keen sailor. He, himself, is towing his 30 ft sloop from London, across to France, through Switzerland, into Italy, then to the Lido in Venice where the sloop will have its new home. (Would that be a re-berth?).   

Better he than I. I am tired already. Land- Ho!
