Fun with Fernwood and Friends

We were up early again and just in time to see a new Fernwood boat "Moment in Time" with Ray and Sue on board. We waited for Rob at Fernwood to then turn up and he ran over our snagging list. Hopefully this will be sorted over the next three weeks. We then made our way down to the show where the Fernwood team were putting up the marquee and sprucing up the showboat. Al helped out doing the inside while Del did the brasses (something we were both used to). We were rewarded with beer!!!
Afterwards we were given a lovely salad lunch and had a long chat with the Fernwood clan. We then went back to Derwent6 and got changed for the entertainment in the evening. We meet up with more friends and danced the night away sampling the forty ales which we got p***ed on with Hookers and Bomber.... Did it finish there....Not a chance! We then walked back to Maxine and Grahams camper van in the middle of a field. We had coffee and cheese on toast to sober up a bit, before we left at 2.00am in the morning!!!!

Hi Del and Al,
It was really great talking with you both today and look forward to seeing Derwent 6 tomorrow.

After speaking with you guys Chris and I are now 90% sure AmyJo is going to be a Fernwood Boat!
