We had a clear drive to St Alban's arriving just after Lunch. We were to have dinner with our niece, Liesel & her husband Adam. They had just got a new addition to the family - a labrador puppy. We left our car at their place & walked into the centre of town. It was about a 20 minute walk, good to stretch our legs after the driving. We ageed to separate so that I could look for something for Tony's Birthday. Tony went off to the famous Cathedral & I was able to find a few things. There are many of the older buildings renovated & used as shops around the centre of town.
We both enjoyed ourselves & met up to walk back together. We all met up )including Adam's parents & decided on Thai Takaway .... soon we were seated, enjoying our meal & where much discussion unfolded. To finish the evening we were taken on a lovely walk around their area. Then we left for the half hour drive back to Val's where we had a ithr couple of days before Tony prepared to fly home. As we walked, we noticed that the feel of St Albans was just as lovely as many other towns in England, with the housing & narrow streets & gardens so typically English.
Pipa took to Tony very quickly. She just loved lots of cuddles. The doggie sitter arrived as we left on our walk.
Family reunion over dinner - so nice to be in Adam & Liesels home.
