But, the morning was absolutely stunning, couldn't ask for a better day.
This seagull kindly stayed on this post for the 15 or so minutes I stood there,
taking pictures of the sunrise over Felixstowe Port.
He even sang a song for me (although, gulls don't really sing, just make a noise)
Bored, he decided to strut his stuff as he left
An amazing sunrise, to be sure
After leaving the marina, we sailed around the River Stour for awhile, practicing a few more Man Overboards, tacking and jiving (although not a lot of wind) and just enjoying the beautiful day.
I love Bev's statement, 'This, (pointing to the water around us) is my classroom'
Yes, it's a seal.
And then, before we knew it, the week was over. We returned to Woolverstone Marina, packed our bags, cleaned the boat and had our final de-brief with Bev.
An amazing, and for me, life changing, week. It was everything I hoped, and more. And I made some totally awesome friends too.
I may have gotten a few events out of sequence, or left bits and pieces out of my account. It happens.
Fair winds my friends.
