Parked in Burnham
  Parked in Burham on Crouch and ready to go. Strangely we had been moved to a new pontoon and the yacht next to us is Jost van Dyke - a place we intend to visit in the British Virgin Islands. An omen perhaps.

Seeing us off
  The 'seeing us off party' at Plymouth the day before we left; Simon and Candy Waldram, Mike and Jackie O'Keefe and Jane's brother Simon. Almost certainly checking we really were leaving the country.
