Muriel Burnett; Sunday Report from Norwich, England. All Have Arrived.
Today at 5:29 PM in Norwich. Tonight we had a warm welcome from Peter and Leslie Davis to the beautiful city of Norwich. We were all given an information pack that has maps, eating places, as well a little history about the city.
We heard a little about Nurse Edith Louise Cavell, (go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edith_Cavell) and how her remains were brought to Norwich Cathedral. Tonight while walking, we found her monument. Today was also a special day for Peter, as he was celebrating his birthday.
As always Jim and Beth, supported everyone with all their help and friendships. Dessert choices were Warm Orange Cake, or a chocolate fudge dessert.
Tomorrow is another day, in which they have a fun day bus tour planned for us, as well as a boat trip on Tuesday morning. Thank you to Peter and Leslie, as well as Jim and Beth for arranging this for us. Off to bed, to rest and enjoy tomorrow! Muriel Burnett

Glenna Earle Sunday Report; Norwich Open. Coach Arrives at Norwich; Dinner Has Been Served!
Hi Stan: Click on “message” above. Think we are all too pooped to do anything today. We sat in Heathrow airport until about 10:30 until the last of the shufflers arrived.
At approximately 10:45 we boarded the coach for Norwich. In the foreground of pic on left, waiting to board is most experienced traveler, most experienced shuffler, Roy Norman. Today is quite a bit cooler than we have been experiencing, but by late afternoon the sun was shining and it was beautiful.
Arrived at the spectacular Maid’s Head hotel and were all assigned rooms. They are in the midst of renovations and some of the rooms are finished while others are still in progress. Our room is much like the pictures Muriel sent. Very nicely done and a great view out the window.
The rest of the afternoon we got settled and unpacked. By 5PM we all reassembled in the Minstrel Room for a very nice dinner. We were addressed by Peter & Lesley regarding what we could expect for the week ahead. It is going to be a very busy one, beginning with a tour all day tomorrow, a boat ride Tuesday and then the tournament will begin Wednesday. It is evident that our hosts have been working tirelessly to put this all together. It was Peter’s birthday and we presented him with a card signed by all of us and sang a rousing Happy Birthday to him.
Beth Allen introduced two travelers from BC; the Potters, George and Melody. Our hostess, Lesley Davis, in dark, speaks with Linda and Bob Marshman and Doris Hanke. (Click on pix to expand)
We have not yet seen too much of the city but it looked very interesting as we passed along the streets on our way to the hotel. Expect to have a bit of time to explore on Tues. Have only a few pics to send this time. Will try to do better tomorrow! Glenna
