Back in Blighty

So here I am then, back in Brighton. My flight yesterday actually arrived 20 minutes early at Heathrow with (astonishingly) no air traffic delays at all. I got a nice aerial view of London on the way in too! Despite the usual congestion at passport control, barely three hours later I was back in my flat drinking a nice cup of tea. I did tube+train this time, as I would have had to wait an hour for the next coach..

I enjoyed my little trip to Copenhagen, as I do every time I go there. Thanks to the Niels Bohr Institute for inviting me!

Anyway, now there’s the rest of the bank holiday weekend to relax and catch up on the crosswords…

    I infer from the pic that you flew back into Heathrow (that’s the London Eye at top right) and that the wind was westerly.

      Well done, Sherlock.

      Yes, we came in under a fairly low cloud ceiling with showers all around but the cloud was just high enough along the flight path to get a good view of the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace etc.

        I once flew over Lords about half an hour before start of play. It ws easy to find from the circle that is Regents Park. I think I’d have been able to recognise which end the bowling was from.

        Did you spot the trained cormorant?
