Day 119 – All Good Things Must Come To An End

Today was our final run in to the marina, we both felt quite sad and motored on tickover for most of it, neither of us wanted our adventure to end. It was a short cruise, stopping at Rugby Boats for fuel, pump out and a gas bottle. Toby asked if I’d (OK, gave me the eyes and almost begged me!) steer us in to the marina, it was on one condition and we go in bow first! Lucky for me, Robin and Jan on nb Sweet Thyme have moved, so I had a double pontoon to aim for!

It was a sad moment on exactly 1050 engine hours we pushed the stop button for the last time on this trip.

We’ve had such a wonderful adventure, made possible by so many people supporting us, from our employers, to family and friends. Regrets? Only one, we didn’t do a celebratory donut goodbye at Salthouse Docks. We’ve often talked about our top three highlights, in no order they are 1) The Ribble Link, 2) Mooring in Liverpool and 3) Making new friends which we hope will be lifelong friends.

With a few tears, it’s time to say goodbye. It’s our second wedding anniversary on Monday, we’ll leave you with the song we walked out to – not everyone’s cup of tea, but we love it, it makes us smile every time we hear it.

    You have so many memories of the time you haver had to stand and wonder at all the sights and plenty of photos should some days slip your memories.
