We have been off Derwent6 for a few days due to another birthday down in Kent.. It has been cold and windy and it would make a nice change to get with friends for a big celebration of Steve's 60th Birthday bash..
We first walked to the Panic Rooms and this turned out to be an escape room in a submarine. You had to suss out the clues and find the codes to open doors and obtain batteries to escape.. Our team failed badly as we had to let Steve win of course..
The following day Bernie and Del went onto the driving range with Steve. He loves his golf and wanted to see if he could play after his operation on his hand.. Del and Bernie hadn't played for over ten years so it was a bit of a learning goal for all of us but such a laugh.. In the evening it was off to see a band. A friend of Steve's, who he played football with, played in the band.
Steve's actual birthday wasn't until the following Tuesday, and his daughter Tanya had arranged for us all to go to Lakeside in Essex where we played Putt Shack, a computerised Crazy golf with a bar and cocktails.. What fun we had there.
We all ended up in Miller and Carter, a lovely steakhouse on a boat on the lakes..
A big thank you to all that were there and to Steve for making it a lovely memory..
We plan to get back on the cut next week as we have a gap in our calendar..
