Unsere vorletzte Unterkunft ist wieder klasse. Heute sind wir allein im Haus. Von hier aus starten wir dann wieder auf Touren in die Umgebung.
Boarded the ship ‘Aurora’ in good time with a minimum of fuss and headed off to the restaurant for lunch. Pretty good with a waiter who kept filling up the wine glass. I shall have to look out for him again! Our friends Ian and Clare were on the QE2 heading to Perth, Australia and which was berthed just in front of us. Just before we both departed there was a good fireworks display which set the scene for our adventure. They left just before us and we departed at approx 1740 hrs. The weather forecast is pretty good with a slight swell and some movement expected as we enter the Bay of Biscay tomorrow.Read more
Getting ready for Holiday can't wait
Just the packing to finish off.!
Spent yesterday afternoon in a working man's club in Eastleigh with Sheila, Jennifer and John, watching the match, (we won't talk about the game if you don't mind) suffice to say it wasn't the result I wanted.
The place was nice and the members made us feel very welcome and the beer was a reasonable price.....
We had originally gone to a local pub where I was told they had the football on sky.
This turned out to be wrong, we were given directions to the club by one of the locals, who even phoned the club for us to make sure we could get in.
He was a star, and as I've said the club was good and we had a bit of banter with the locals, who at one time after united had scored and I wasn't happy all started doing impressions of Harry Enfields curly haired Scousers and all saying " calm down, calm down" in the worst Liverpool accents I've ever heard.
But out was great fun and it's definitely a place I'd visit again.
Except for the result of the match it was a great start to the holiday.Read more
