Finally on our way!

We are now back from our adventure getting the boat back from Lagos to Liverpool Marina. It has taken me a long time to get around to putting this on the net but finally I decided to get my finger out and get it done!! It wa a good trip from Portugal to the Azores ... lots of dolphins, a turtle and even a whale! John tried to get some work done with his sextant which sometimes he was more successful with than others! The weather was on the whole kind to us on the first leg of the rip though the first ten hours or so out from Cape St. Vincent were a bit choppy causing us all to feel a bit queasy but we all stuck it out even Paul who was really quite poorly again. However give him his due he never complained once and just stuck it out down below with his bucket til his body got used to the rockin and rollin! He must have felt better because on Johns 61st birthday he made a tuna bake all his own recipe and really tasty it was too! We arrived at Ponta Delgado 5 days or so before we had anticipated. A really nice place ... good value and a very friendly place. We took time out to hire a car and see more of the place and Paul decided to live a little dangerously hiring a Quad bike. Quadman as he was known as from therein on followed us up the volcano. It was a good day.
