After a restful night we enjoyed the buffet breakfast. The dishes on offer should satisfy even the fussy person. Our shuttle to the coach station is due at 10:55 so there was no rush to vacate the room. The weather is quite miserable and we're thankful for the weatherproofs. Our coach to Southampton is running a bit late but there's no rush. Traffic is heavy and has come to a complete stop in places after an accident on one of the major motorways.
We arrived in Southampton at about 14:15, found a taxi and were checked in at the Highfield House just after 15:00. The property has a comfortable homely feel and our ground-floor room was ready. Unpacked just the essentials and went for a walk to explore the local area. There are a variety of food outlets and we dropped into one for fish and chips. We called into Sainsburys for some fruit and a cup as Jenny forgot to pack one.
The rain and wind is picking up and we're happy to be comfortable back in our room. Early to bed as we're still recovering from the long flight. Onto the Caribbean Princess tomorrow.
Until next time. Wishing you good health and safe travel.
Have a great day and stay well.
Cheers .. Tony
