In some respects, we should title the blog " Eating and drinking our way around the World, "
We had that title many moons ago , and it fits the bill nicely.
Spain won the World cup, and needless to mention that the Spaniards on this trip will have bragging rights for some time to come.
some of the crews got out of the scratchers at 04.30 hrs to watch the match on TV.
07.00hrs, We moved the boat to the quay wall, and made ourselves comfortable there.
skipper went to the " Yachting World" office to register our berth position and sort out some paperwork.
Aileen found a medical centre and got some advice and medication from the in house doctor, She was happy with this,
Do you know something, we still miss Donal and Margaret,, the boat seems so quiet..........
Grab this, The music man at the marina bar has a black tee shirt with F.B.I. written on the back.
He says F.B.I. stands for ..........." Female Body Inspector" he he , gas , isint it !................................
11.30 We decided to continue our trip around the Island, On our way , we dropped off Scotty , Mike and Jeanne at the Cascade falls,
and continued to the Havanagh Restaurant for lunch, and Aileen had a swim when we were finished eating.
15.00hrs, We departed the " Havannagh " and drove north about the island, Beautifull lush green country side, so many different types of trees,
It took 2 hours to complete the trip, and not helped with the lack of signs,
We returned the 4x4 when we reached town again, and walked back to the boat.. just in time to go to the Commadore's house for drinks,
19.00hrs We ( all 3 of us ) returned to " Voyaguer" for dinner, Dave and Sue prepared a lovely lamb dinner, ( Sue mostly )
with a goats cheese starter,, the whole thing was yum, yum,
Meanwhile , skipper had a belly pork roasting in the oven on " A Lady", as it was out of the deep freezer long enough
and needed to be cooked, so it will do cold lunches,
We had a great night on " Voyaguer" and it was late when we returned to " A Lady"
We hit the scratchers, and zzzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzz
Thats it for now,
