Tottenham: Another Grand Day Out At White Hart Lane

Thank goodness for Steve’s driving ability. Yet again the 120 mile drive home was through a rain storm in the dark. At one point as a car overtook us it hit standing water and sent up a wave, like a massive bucket load being thrown over the windscreen. We were driving blind at 70 miles an hour for a few seconds. Many drivers would have lost it and we could have ended up in a ditch.

Home safe at 10.30 Just over 12 hours after we set off. Quite a day. Thanks Steve and Fran.
