After a splendid farewell meal last night we waltzed back to Tainui in good spirits. Moored bow in, the boat presents a mildly challenging hurdle when boarding, even though the thoughtful skipper has rigged a boarding ladder which hangs from the pulpit.
Ian climbed on first, and the attached picture says it all. Stone cold sober, Maxine and I were rolling about with laughter on the jetty when I made an executive decision to delay our departure for 24 hours.
The following morning we are all feeling a bit seedy and only Maxine did fried eggs for herself. I feel justified in my decision.
