Bel13ve- Day Twenty Eight and Nine - A long Walk home!

Previously on Bel13ve ( or ...and Bruce came too) Day 27

If reading for the first time and want to read more please read from the very start -Index here

DAY 28/29 -Friday August 23rd/ 24th 2013.

Well here it is

The end!

I've no photos - I had no inclination to take any photos and I had not one inclination to write any notes about these two days
We were going home

We packed the car, we listened to E street radio for one last time.
We checked in at Orlando and we flew to Washington to catch our transatlantic flight.
Once more Bruce came with us

Having been with us through the fab satellite radio for the duration of the trip - Bruce Met us at the airport well not really

Airport music to me has never been anything until a moment in Washington - a disorganised hub for United Airlines- but from nowhere we heard - Long Walk Home .
Ironic I know but given everything we had listened to in the car it was the most fitting of a departure.

We arrived in London early which resulted in a long wait for the train home - had promised Joanna 23 I would give my verdict on this at the very end Just to make sure she reads the whole thing!

I have driven so many times so the idea of sitting in a station and passing 4 hours for a train seems a complete waste of time
However I am not driving and from past experiences that is a good thing.
So much so I would go by train again as long as the price is favourable and the train times sensible.
We built in a lot of 'just in case' time and would probably do so again, there were a few opportunities for food at Kings Cross which allowed us to simply wait for the longest I have done so all month!

The Bruce thing - I thank anyone who has posted for their comments, he really did not mean to come with us and the radio station we enjoyed resulted in the Ipod remaining unneeded in the car - we heard so much music we would never have experienced at home.
I do have one last treat on that front - see below.

For anyone who has read the whole thing this far - I thank you
For anyone who has posted I thank you even more - there were times I thought I would not complete - I have = thank you xx

For anyone who has posted on every thread you can have the soundtrack

..and for anyone who is still interested we are about to do it all again

The next one is here- Meet me in the Land of Hope and Dreams

For anyone who has read this whole report - we came across this video soon after our return home.
It is what we all do - as parents, kids, and dibbers.

A fitting end to a whole trip report that Bruce came with us too

Dream Baby Dream- the final Bruce song of the day in video

Hope you watch

Thanks for reading and watching xx


THE END!

Thank you John, Alison, Josh and Joe for sharing such special memories for us all to enjoy a live a long with you and thank you for sticking with the trip writing to the very end.

All of the hardwork in preparing for such trips and the sacrifices made a long the way can be cherished for so long when they are laid out like this.

Whether it's looking through photos, watching videos or re reading through your trip reports the memories are there to cherish!

What a fantastic choice of Bruce song to sign of with too!

I know you will enjoy your current trip as much as every other and I can't wait to read all about it?
