II just came back from a 10 day trip to the UK to visit my dad (who I had not seen for 4 years). More details to follow as I sort my brain and photos out but highlights include
- four days on my dad's yacht (a Bavaria 33, Bavaria being a noted centre of ocean cruising) with stops in Portsmouth harbour (under the walls of Portchester Castle) and Cowes.
- live theatre at the Chichester Festival with Zoe Wannamaker in "Stevie" with my dad managing to get a mention in the Telegraph review.
- a trip to the British Museum to see the Vikings exhibit and other wonders
- a game with Tim Gow of Megablitz (and obscure vehicle and plane) fame for a test game of Funny Cold Wars
