This picture shows part of a very regular routine for our family. Daughter-dear (see icon) went back from the island to the British Mainland today, returning to college. It has been part of our routine for the past four years, and she found it harder to leave everyone here than usual this year. The routine of packing everything up, putting it into her little car, a three and a half hour sea trip, and a three hour drive to her 'second home' marks the end of summer for us.
Here are the first of the bags and boxes beginning to fill the hallway.
