Ron is still at Gatwick - his flight has been delayed till 1300 tomorrow (1st Nov) so he's enjoying the delights of the Hilton hotel at Virgin Atlantic's expense (I gather the pear and apricot crumble was delicious but he balked at paying £4.95 for a Peroni!).
What's not clear is whether Ron will be able to get to Marigot Bay from the airport once he arrives. We've heard that the heavy rainfall has caused landslides with roads and bridges washed away. Fingers crossed that Curtis the taxi driver makes it to the airport to collect Ron!
