We enjoyed days and nights by their fire.
After church, Jayne cooked a lovely lunch with a roast beef and vegetables and freshly baked apple pie. It was wonderful to catch up and share good times.
We also paid a visit to Jayne's nephew's family whom we met last year. Andrew is 13, and the twins, Sophie & Amy are 10. They entertained us with music, flute and guitar that night.
For lunch, we ate at an Italian restaurant with tasty food and scenery.
On Tuesday, we had a morning to relax before we went sightseeing to the west. One of the sheep,at The Barn came close to me as I held my iPad. He looked intrigued.
On our final morning at the Barn House, I met the farmer of the sheep who came to inject penicillin to two of the sheep that were limping. His sheepdog, a collie named Jim, easily maneuvered the flock to a certain area. He had an important job to do and he did it well.
After returning to Birmingham to get Russ' staples removed, our timing was fluid as we had sufficient time at each airport to catch our three flights back hime. In the photo below, we were over the English Channel approaching France, as Paris was our first transit destination.
Perfect flight sequence from Birmingham to Saipan. It's nice to go on a trip, but it's always refreshing to return to our home. Now, it's "rest and recover completely" time for Russ. We were blessed with few travel complications, great weather throughout the trip and a highly successful surgery. What more can we ask?
