Trip to Eastbourne and Meeting Mark’s Family. This morning, Mark and Alan go to pick up our rental Ford after we had a sit-down cup of coffee, like a family – not something we get to do often with the work that twins take.

I am so impressed Mark can easily adapt to driving on the opposite side of the road, as is his habit. We leave midmorning for the trip to Eastbourne, a Victorian seaside resort area, where Ian and Barbara live – nephew Sean and his wife Dea have come down for the day, from Carpenders Park, 20 miles north of London to see us.

When we arrive, kisses first and then a mimosa (Bucks’ Fizz) was in our hands within five minutes. We are honored visitors. We have a visit on their patio, amid lovely plants, talking of the state of the world, mostly. Barbara has prepared an attractively presented “high tea” for our repast, before we check into the OBAN Hotel on the waterfront.
