I must admit Griff we did think of you in the shed as the wind got stronger and stronger and the rain heavier and heavier, we did sleep for a while but then at 04:30 that noise started.....

Hmmm not sure I would call it back seat driving if I have hold of the wheel but hey ho... Needless to say Charlie slept through the next bit involving me going outside and sorting out the mooring lines as the noise I heard was the ropes chafing on the posts... grrr that is so annoying, and you know you are going to get wet, and you know it's cold, and you know your jammies will not help (much)....
Anyway lines sorted, ropes sorted, I crept back to bed and snuggled down listening to the sound of the storm, thinking how lucky I was to be here listening and being warm and cosy ... it was bliss.  

Tomorrow would dawn cool and with drizzel but it would turn out to be a fantastic day... Phil, Diane and Charlie and the Corsicans we had a fine time...

More later bed time here......

I was awake, I heard you go out, I just make an informed choice not to join you!

I also notice you are still alive after drinking tank water for two weekends now... Maybe bottled water isn't everything it's cracked up to be eh!!!

Absolutely - fully admit that life without bottled water and Fray Bentos is totally do-able!

You have taught me well, Yoda!

You can manage without bottled water but but not Fray Bentos. That used to be staple diet along with bananas and custard for me onboard Malanka.
Great tale Martin. Keep it up Smile

If I ever had a conversation with SternMoor in which the immortal phrase "hold ups" was mentioned, K would assume I was discussing the unlawful activities of Bonny and Clyde...

And I agree garryn, got to have one Fray Bentos during the week.  Thai Green Curry is also good though...

I wonder how you managed getting back through the bridge?

Keep it coming...

Do keep up Dolly,

We are now outside moonfleet its 04:00 in the morning and I am soaking wet cold and annoyed I had to get up to fix the mooring lines.

Next day is Sunday which was our 19th Wedding anniversary and the whole point of the trip...

More to come later

Now I love a Fray Bentos, Lisa and Garry, but I have to admit that the food which Martin and Fiona cook isn't even in the same league.  It is blooming lovely!

Where would we be without Fray Bentos and the griping indigestion that follows. I find that you can get almost the same effect from Tesco ready made shepherd's pie. Smile

Seriously, your antics are causing great amusement here. Keep it going!
