The Journey Home

I'm pleased to report that the trip home was nice and smooth, just Dave and me this time, no chaperone.
 
The water was a bit choppier, so we stayed close to the other boats even though we felt a lot more confident. I steered us towards the estuary and beyond 5 mile perch, almost up the River Douglas. Wey Hey! Then Dave took over. 
 
Tell you what though, we'll both have arm muscles like Popeye, because the resistance on the tiller was huge amongst those waves!
 
Setting off from the mooring at Preston Dock...

Heading into the lock...
 
 
A flotilla of boats coming out together, thought we'd stay out of "the race" if you could call it that...
 
Staying close...

Not very clear, lots of swans together on the River Douglas...

When we got back to St Mary’s marina, it was a case of get the canopy tops back on, meet  and greet folks, then EAT!
 
So Dave went out to get a takeaway. After a day out on the high seas it was like a luxury meal…!
