We would normally be off by now.
School is out. The holidays have started but we are not moving gently northward between familiar banks on our summer holiday cruise.
My nephew and his fiancee have chosen this weekend to get married. This is a great time of celebration and the clan is gathering in Cardiff to witness the event. He says that it is the first wedding in his family for two generations (don't ask!) and everybody is over the moon about it. We love weddings. I have been involved in five as father of the bride or groom and to be on the sidelines for this one will be quite a change. I may even take a few photos without being one of the prime suspects.
It will be fun and we will rush back to the boat on Monday. From then the serious cruising will commence.
