After years of talking about it, we’re now just a couple of hours away from starting on our Atlantic crossing!

It’s been non stop partying all week but we’ve worked hard at various jobs around the boat during the day so I think we deserve to let off steam at night. Our friends have arrived from home to see us off and we’ve had a couple of very memorable nights out with them all.

I’m starting to feel a bit apprehensive but I suppose that’s only natural. We’ve had an emotional Skype call to our eldest daughter and grandson and I really do miss them. (Yes, son in law as well.)

Vey mixed emotions at this stage.
