Mid Week Run Out

Sonas in is the yard for some maintenance and upgrades. So yesterday we took the RIB out for a spin. One of the big advantages of now being retired, we can do this mid-week when we practically have the place to ourselves!

Lovely few hours, pity we were chased back home by some afternoon thunder storms!

Being free of weekend crowds is great. We spent the summer on Pickwick Lake and found that we usually stayed in the slip on weekends and went out during the week.
