Ahh... airport security

Let the birthday celebrations begin.  Arrived at Gatwick in the morning.  Check-in was fairly quick, getting through security was not.  You'd think that considering the length of time since the increased level of security the process would become quicker and smoother... but no!  Eventually we made our way through the security check - we even had time to have some food whilst waiting in line.   Spent a little while walking through the shops and decided to take a seat and have a coffee. 

Due to being delayed in the security line is wasn't long before our flight signalled "Go To Gate" on the departure board.  We diligently followed the instructions and made our way to the gate only to be held outside as there wasn't enough room in the gate lounge for all the passengers and they weren't ready to begin boarding.  So it was another patient wait in line for us.  I think about 10 minutes passed before they began to allow passengers to board and then another 10 minutes before they lets us, and many other behind, through the gate to board.  But we made it on the plane, settled in and prepared for the long flight ahead by checking out the onboard entertainment.
