Today, May 5th, we have been married for 43 years. Ian reckons it's a Blooming Miracle 'cos he needed the patience of a saint for at least 42 of those years. Well really....I don't know what he means??? Going for a meal somewhere special tonight. I mentioned Wetherspoons but he wants something a bit more posh. Means I've got to get dressed up....now where did I put my posh frock?
Not a bad sunset last night. From having the pontoon to ourselves when we arrived at 5pm, another three boats turned up much later. Two I know are hoping to go up the lift this morning, already having booked for a 9.30am passage (pay an administration fee if you pre book your passage otherwise if you take pot luck, no fee applies).
This morning was glorious and away from the breeze quite warm. We got a way fairly sharpish having just about survived the night crossing our legs (indicator full light flashed on the cassette this morning phew that was lucky!) and within 20 minutes relief at last as we reached the facilities.
