Pam's 86th and Yep we're Cruising!!!

Pam has just had her 86th Birthday and we had a lovely time with her.. she had her best friend Eunice for a little party and we had tea and birthday cake.. and plans have been made for us to get back on Derwent6 for a few days..
Well we're back on Derwent6 at last, together!! Del came up to sort out things and give Derwent6 a clean up and on Thursday afternoon Al actually managed to get on board.. So what to do with this precious time... Well the first thing we both did believe it or not was SLEEP!. Yep! we had the fire roaring and both feel asleep in front of it..
We then made use of the car and went to the Hungry Horse pub "The Steam Turbine" and had a wonderful steak so we will be going back there again.. From there it was the pictures and we went at last to see "Fifty Shades of Grey" and I've got to say we both enjoyed it.....
It was so lovely being together in the peace and quiet of Derwent6, and on Friday morning we were up and excited about what we could do.. We had a light breakfast and then did a few jobs on Derwent6.. Al likes to clean all the work surfaces and Del cleaned the lamp..
We then jumped in the car and went swimming in Rugby and then had some lunch and headed back to the marina.. We were desperate for diesel and had to battle the wind to get on the pump, but we made it....
It was then off at last and we were cruising.. Oh it felt so good to both be on the stern of Derwent6 and watching the wildlife and tranquillity of it all...

We headed to Clifton, one of our favourite moorings through the winter months. It took us about an hour and a half and it was just lovely..
When we got there Del finished off the brasses and Al chilled reading her book in the afternoon, it was so good for us both..
In the evening we walked up to Table Table and had a romantic meal for two working out our plans for the future..

We have also had time off the boat for medical reasons. Now the plan is to spend holidays on the boat in the spring and summer. We have a mooring at Cropredy Marina and go North or South from there.
