First formal 'doo' last night, it was an excellent night, we have Bob Champion on-board at the moment and had drinks with him in the Crows nest late last night and we are having dinner with him tonight, a really nice guy and full of great stories.

No idea what it was about as I couldn't read the placards but I suspect it was something about conservation of the river. The rain came down that evening so after dinner spent the evening writing with an Irish coffee in the cosy lounge of Hotel Rias Bajas. What a tough life ...
