Saying goodbyes.

The plan today was to get back to Lincoln for lunchtime, and as we had made good progress yesterday we could chill a little before we left. Again it was very windy and we pushed off into the current. We made steady progress up to the lock in the city. Again we did the Glory hole and then got to the moorings at the Woodcocks Inn.
We just had time to get ready and then we all meet up with Ann and Tony again, along with Bernie's sister Christine and husband Graham. We had a lovely meal in the 2 for 1 and it was lovely to be meeting up with everyone.
We all went back to Derwent6 in the sunshine, before we all departed.. Christine left first and then Bernie and Sarah left with his Mum and Dad to pick up their car.. Ann and Tony had brought Al a small money tree (to replace her one that is on its last legs), which made her cry as that is something her Dad would have done.
We all had a great time and it was lovely to see them.. Thanks guys for everything.. Things ended with a brilliant send off with the Red Arrows giving us a display overhead.

Tooty wasn't amused!
Oh that reminds us, Al has now got all her cards from her Birthday, and a big thank you to everyone who sent cards and presents.. They will now go up on Derwent6 for a week..
