WE are back and getting ready for the off. Firstly east to Nerja for the 2005 Blue Water Reunion, then back west to Algarve to collect Keith, and then we are off to the Canaries for the first stage in our fantastic trip.
We are anchored again in Portimao, and have been shopping and playing golf as well as jobs on the boat. Well, Stephen has been playing golf with his good friend Nick. It was a lovely afternoon to walk around the golf course, and for me to pretend to caddy some of the time!!
Our Rally partners, on Oyster Moon and Marita 3 have been here this week, so we have been able to catch up and re-estabish the links which we will keep up for the next 18 months. They set off yesterday towards Madeira and we spoke with them this evening and all is progressing well. We will all meet up in a few weeks time when we all set off together.
The day after I arrived, there was a beach party organised and it was just lovely. New friends, relaxed atmostphere and of course food and wine. There was also a brilliant sunset too.
Do get in touch and find out how we are doing, it will be lovely to hear from you.
Best wishes, Annie & Stephen.
