Took Number One Son back to Uni on Sunday, a round trip of a little over 600 miles. My butt is still recovering from sitting down for so long...
The traffic going up was pretty good, except for one incident. We were rolling along merrily, over half way there. All I did was say how good the traffic was being.
I caught the look from by brother who was driving.
Then I realised that there was no traffic coming the other way. Not a good sign. Within seconds our side of the road had ground to a halt, and then crawled for a couple of miles. We then reached the crash site, which had just been cleared, and everything moved off as normal again. The blockage on our side seemed to be solely caused by people "rubber-necking"!
The Uni was reasonably quiet when we arrived. The Saturday had been the big arrival day, so we dodged a bullet there! My son is back in the same room as last year, which was rather nice for him. We quickly unloaded, then headed to get some lunch at a pub that we are starting to feel like regulars at. Then is was time to say goodbye and head southwards for home. The return traffic was rather less pleasant, but not the worst we have experienced, but we passed the time in the usual way with a constant stream of chatter about everything from Syria to queuing in shops.
I had the foresight to book Monday as holiday, so I had a bit of a laying, then Mrs RC and I went out for breakfast that had become lunch by the time we arrived. Having eaten we then did a bit of shopping before heading home for a fairly lazy afternoon and evening!
I totally slept through the red moon thing that happened, it was at its best over here between 3am and dawn, which is not a time that I tend to be awake. Never mind, my camera is not great for that sort of shot anyway...
Hope you are having a great week! More soon.
