Got a send off by Jenny and Clive and the ubiquitous camera. Kisses and photos - will post photos but keep kisses. Ladybird and Creature performed beautifully as always, but Mandy had a complete panick getting onto the ferry at Portsmouth. Ladybird saw her right though, and after getting settled a fantastic dinner was served in the restaurant. Because of high strengh antibios, Mandy celebrated the start of our trip with a delicious camomile tea, Roy with a bottle of Chateauneuf de Pape, several pints and a large gin and tonic. Slept well, Mandy because it was the first night in 4 without debilitating toothache, Roy because, well, judge for yourselves. Second day is not going so well. As I type, France are thrashing England in the rugby. There will be tears before bedtime! Due to arrive Bilbao 6.p.m. and then along the coast to Gijon for the night. Ladybird is already wondering how Mandy is going to manage getting OFF the ferry. The tension is already palpable.
