The family passion lives on

Grandchildren celebrate their grandads return, playing pirates, sporting their new t-shirts. I think they have a few ideas for improvements of Annie's song

Final day at sea

Left early 5am to catch the tides, it's amazing how the tides and wind can work with you or literally make you go backwards!the forecast for later in the day was force 6/7, so we decided to make a quick dash home to make sure our last day was a good one.

Late arrival

No wildlife but some interesting vehicles on the way, loved this boat, reminded me of the sellers along the prom at Blackpool illuminations, selling day glo bands.😊

Arrived at Suffolk yacht harbour at 2pm.

Putting Annie's song to bed (for a short nap at least) sails away, dingy down, tent up on the back etc etc.

We will miss this little lady.

We crashed at 8pm, but Derek is still going! So he's off to the yacht club to meet his new neighbours.

Went past these two ships in Felixstowe, believe it or not each ship has hundreds of freighter containers, each one brought into port by an articulated truck.
