1994 Brighton England - view from hotel window where HH & Jean were staying after Jean's broken ankle
Saturday, April 23, 1994 - [England] Got to Housel Bay Hotel on Lizard Peninsula [Cornwall], Room #4, a great view of the ocean, but oh the wind. John and Julie had stayed there two years earlier, also Murray had suggested this place. We had so much breakfast, we saved the ham for lunch at Gidleigh Park, what a lane/road to get to it, but very nice and Jean bought some cook books there. Two nights at Housel Bay Hotel, total $166 [or#?] The big room right over the Dining Room quite drafty.
1994 - HH & Jean travel on the "freeway" to Gidleigh Park, Devon, England
Monday, April 25, 1994 - [Cornwall to Salisbury England] Drizzle all day. Drove to Salisbury, 213 miles, room #1 at the Milford Hall Hotel. Got food and groceries including dry soup which we warmed up on the "tea service" in the room.
Tuesday, April 26, 1994 - [Salisbury to Gatwick England] Went to Longleat House, had wheel chair available and a lift so were able to see the whole house. Also an electric cart for touring the grounds -- tight corners on some of the buildings, even took a boat ride. Then drove through the extensive safari animal area. Had reservations at the Gatwick Hilton and they had a wheel chair. Room had 3 phones.
Wednesday, April 27, 1994 - [Gatwick England to Ohio] Lots of red tape clearing customs, while in line got talking with Jim Ritchey of Newark who knew John. Got gas at the airport 52.9p for a liter or about $3/gallon. We were in row 37 F and G and had an extra seat so flight went well. We landed in Cincy in the new terminal and had a LONG walk, train starts next month.
