To Argyll Lodge
To Argyll Lodge, Southampton
We tore ourselves away from Margaret and Roger for the hour-long journey to Southampton in readiness for the Boat Show on the morrow. Bear’s turn to drive but he got Pepe weather, absolute torrential rain and visibility down to a few feet. Tired and ready to check in, I knock on the door and a very surprised voice politely asks “what can I help you with”, well, a room booked and paid for back in March. Out the very nice lady came and apologetically offered us a twin room with no en suite. Too tired and too late to start finding anywhere with not only the Boat Show but a couple of cruise ships due out as well. In we traipse with the promise of an en suite double for tomorrow night. Beds soon settled. This is the first time this has ever happened to us and thank heavens for the late cancellation, otherwise no room at all...................
ALL IN ALL AN AMUSINGLY MIXED BAG
A STORMY JOURNEY TO A SINGLE BED
