- LAST FEW DAYS*
Always a sad occasion when see those words, but all good things must come to an end.
Since our departure from Cartagena an overnight steam took us to going through the Straits of Gibraltar at 7.30 the next morning. On the 25th a day at sea with weather and sea condition all in our favour, we rounded Cape St Vincent and took a northerly coarse up the coast of Portugal, with a light southerly wind on our stern it made for very favourable conditions on deck with the sun out as well, not hot but very nice.
26th , much the same really, very nice conditions, sea state flat light SE`ly winds we made our entrance into the Bay of Biscay, with no demons in sight, sat out on deck late afternoon, sun coming down, what more could we ask for. That evening the sea was like a mirror.
27th last full day, Packing day!!! “How are we going to fit it all in” but we make it! Sea and weather all good again, sea is like a mirror again as we round Ushant point off of the north of France, now into the English channel. Apart for the first couple of days out of Southampton where we had overcast days the weather has been good, it was nice to see the sun and
feel the heat on your back, so we can feel satisfied, just what you would hope for if you were at home.
Well we will signed off now, and say Goodbye to you all. (Again)
