Well, the weather is holding us back already! we decided not to risk the journey to Howth as gale force 8 was predicted for later in the day. I was not expecting a hold like this so soon… but hey ho. .I will learn to be patient.
John has been good company and braved the rain and gone to explore the local area again today . We have done a bit of washing and chandlery shopping and bits and pieces on the boat that we didn’t manage to complete before leaving. The curtains are all up and look ok. ( still would have preferred a colourful material but cant subject Chris to too much yet…. Will wait a while when the pace of Mediterranean life kicks in and he is wearing Hawian style shirts!!
Chris has been spending quite a time plotting our courses and changing from plan A to plan B as necessary! . he is uncomplaining of this undertaking of which i admire and trust his judgements. . Once he feels confident with route planning i hope i will get a chance to learn too.
Looks like we will be off tomorrow morning with the brisk northerly winds behind us for a long slog to Howth.
Oh …. It is Chris’s 58th birthday today…. so may just go out for a meal tonight and maybe go to the cinema… or what ever he wishes.
Been wondering how Howard and Matthew are getting on with the new kitchen installation. am keeping my fingers crossed that it all goes as planned.
All is left now is to post this…. Here goes…. will see if this works……. cheerio the noo x
