Ivan, Lil Dave and I woke up at 8 am on July 15, 2013. Ivan and I packed everything up.
We left with our bags and went to the buffet at 8:45 am. Saw The Aussies there and ate our breakfast.
Left the Carnival Legend at 9 am. While we were waiting for Ivan’s dad Ken to pick us up, we chatted.
We piled into the car and Ken dropped off The Aussies at the Dover train station. We said good-bye to Tim and Gabbie.
Arrived in Southend at Ivan’s parents house at 12:08 pm. It was good to see Ken and Denise again.
Denise had fixed up a big feast with fish, walnut bread, salad and more. A tasty fruit salad with soy raspberry yogurt was for dessert.
Ivan and I had lots of laundry from the cruise, so we put it in the washer and then later hung it up outside.
Ivan, Ken, Denise and I drove to East Beach and walked by the water.
It was a lovely day out.
Went back to the house where Ivan and I used the internet.
Ivan, Denise, Ken and I had tea with pear cake, bread and crumpets.
Later, that night we all went to the Portuguese restaurant O’Picado. Ivan and I shared mackerel marinated in herb and wine vinegar sauce for our starter.
Ivan got a great vegetable bean stew while I had a good black scabbard filet in a Provencal sauce.
Back at the house, Ivan and I watched the movie Get Him to the Greek before going to sleep.
