Title: Leaving Plymouth at last!


Having had our rigging replaced Richard spent many hours on various tasks which we had hoped to have done before we left Portishead.  We now have a fully fitted bimini, a TV that is firmly mounted (as opposed to its previous string mounting), replacement blocks on the main sheet, new spinnaker halyard and racks for all the books in our cabin.


 Just about ready!


We also had yet another BBQ with Kathy and Roger together with joint friends Kerry and John, from our Cyprus days and were able to sit in the garden until midnight.


 A perfect summers evening for Pimms and a barbeque


 Roger and John obviously delighted to have their photos taken!


  Hurry up and take this photo, we can’t sit with these polite smiles for much longer!



Lyn and Martin came to visit bringing a bottle of bubbly to celebrate not having to see us for at least a few months!


  Was it something I said?


  How Richard loves having his photo taken.



 Following a replen with vital provisions ie wine and beer, courtesy of Kathy who took us to the supermarket we left QAB and tootled across the Sound to Cawsand anchorage.  It is a lovely little spot, really peaceful and old fashioned.
