From Provence to North Devon in 8 hours via easyJet and Rentacar. It's all quite normal in the 21st Century, but it still amazes me. A hundred years ago that would have taken... a week? 
As we landed in Gatwick, so the temperature plummeted. Much has been said about the truly awful British weather this summer and true to form it rained most of the way down the M4 & M5. I gather it's due to the jet stream being in the wrong place.
Arrived in Torrington (home of Dartington Crystal - the only working glass factory left in the UK) in time to watch Andy Murray edge David Ferrer in the rain-interrupted Wimbledon quarter-finals, while we caught up on each others' lives. Nice to see everyone.
