After a traumatic week in which all my worldly goods went into storage, three of us are in Madiera for a few days. I have always wanted to visit Reid's Palace Hotel and it is exceeding expectations. The three of us are my daughter, Ruth, my grand-daughters, Charlotte and myself.
This is us having scrambled eggs and smoked salmon plus Buck's Fizz for breakfast at Gatwick. Charlotte starting as she means to go on. I had tea!
The hotel is at the upper left and the hotel pool is at the lower right. Everywhere means stairs.
A tiled picture in the hotel. There are tiles everywhere and flowers.
The hotel restaurant has a terrace and we had dinner up above the sea cliffs looking out to sea. I am feeling more cheerful already.
Last Thursday Dorothy and Robin and myself went and inspected the new house and made a list of things to be done. All looks good to me. Now off for breakfast down by the pool.
