... where we spent the night. Big thunder storms surrounded us and it teamed buckets, windows leaked in the boat some more so a little more of the repairs were necessary. Hot days and stormy nights were the order of the day (wishful thinking maybe??) with delightful dinners, good company with Alan and Shiela once we had docked.

We had planned to have a little lie in but John had to take the car back to Europcar by 8.20. After breakfast he hung out the washing (Isi had done a final load this morning and cooked bacon and egg!).
