England and Scotland: Nothing Dram-atic–Dispatch 1

Greetings from Henley-On-Thames, home of the Henley Regatta.  We are at the end of our one-week whirlwind drive through Great Britain.   Call this a shake-down drive that has nothing to do with anything to come.   The reason for the shaking down is a new old car that Bernard purchased, a 1957 Bentley S1 saloon. And the reason I call this letter “nothing dram-atic” is because of what I’ve been doing on this trip in addition to splendid map reading.

As you all know, I am not much into cars other than to sit on the passenger side (which in this car is on the wrong side, which confused me endlessly) and tell Bernard where to go.  Sort of.
