June 24- Leaving Glasgow for home.

Not much to say here folks. Up at 5:30 and finished all my miscellaneous items in my bags and then down to wait for my taxi at 6:20. He was there 5 minutes later and we had an easy 20 minute drive to the airport. Just as agreed the price was 14 pounds with a 2 pound tip. No problem checking in and getting through security in about 45 minutes. Had a small breakfast sandwich with a cappuccino and then headed off towards where I expected my gate would be. I had about an hour before boarding but there are lots of comfortable seating areas. Couldn't connect to internet so my message to Carol telling her I was on the way didn't go until I landed in Halifax. The flight was uneventful and took about 6 hours a little less than usual because headwinds were lighter this morning. Cleared customs using my Nexus pass which has worked really well the last few times I have used it. I was requested to divert for a random interview but when the agent found out that I had only brought 2 shot glasses home for a value of $10 he sent me on.

It was lovely to see Carol's smiling face and the rest of her waiting for me when I got out of customs. This concludes my travels to the UK this year. It has been a good time and I got to experience lots of new things.
It won't be my last trip there.
