and all too soon it was the end of the week and we found ourselves saying goodbye once again.
Our last night is usually Prawn night, and this year was no exception. Here’s Joan about to dig into the marvellous array of salads and the huge dish of local prawns….. A close up of the prawns, anyone?
After breakfast on the Saturday, our luggage loaded, and ourselves aboard Gripper, it was time to go. Steve threw off the mooring ropes and we were away, waving our goodbyes to Jane, Martin, Liz and Frances who had come to see us off. Soon we were bumping through the waves, leaving Doune behind……..
I had one last photo to take – of Steve, our lovely young lad the boatman….and didn’t he blink just at the wrong moment! Shame! Hopefully he and Frances, his girlfriend, will be at Doune again next year, along with the fabulous folk who make Doune the most wonderful place for a holiday – and lace week. Thanks and love as always, to Liz and Andy, Martin and Jane, Steve and Frances. See you next year.
Talk again soon.
