Aaaaah! Sunset from the pontoon

Aaaaah! Sunset from the pontoon

We have finally managed to leave the ‘comfy shoe’ of Waterford.

On Saturday we made off with my sister, Libby, onboard

and caught the tide down past her village of Passage East, to Dunmore East. What a difference the sun makes to a place.

Our plan was to refuel in Dunmore and then sail to the Scillies on Sunday/Monday, but we’ve decided to stay here ’til Thursday. There is a force 8+ forecast for Tuesday night down there and we didn’t fancy having to do anchor watches on top of watches on a 24 hour passage.
The new HM at Dunmore East is actively encouraging yachts into the harbour and has set aside a couple of pontoons where fishing boats aren’t allowed to moor.
Once again we’re in the right place at the right time. The local Sailing Club had it’s summer BarBQ yesterday and we got to meet some locals, (who if they don’t know how to fix a thing, they know at least two people who do!) and enjoyed the best steak and tasty creative salads we’ve eaten in a long time!

Life is good.

    Hey. Great speaking to you both (and seeing you) whilst we were enjoying Richard and Kay’s hospitality. As ever, fair winds and happy safe sailing. Lots of love, John and Deborah.
    BTW my home made bread won first prize at the Langton Fete on Saturday. Total entries – two. I’m so, so proud.
