Sunday Annual General Meeting
Sunday 4:30am, a clanging of bells, and baa, baa, baa. Those cute sheep had found our campsite and were having a fine old time playing and leaping around in the early morning.
After another fine breakfast it was time for the AGM itself and following that, lunch!
Sadly the lunch saw the end of the programme, so with several farewells, the ferry sailed back and forth several times to the mainland until only the six yachts and their crew plus the six of us on the road trip were left.
We waved off the six yachts to begin their flotilla cruise, the first night in Kristiansand for dinner and then north east along the Norwegian coast towards Oslo. Unbelievably, this would be the last time we would see Ali Peters.
The sun was still high in the sky so we circumnavigated Bragdøya on foot, finding more lovely views and small coves. A very convivial evening followed in Gerhart’s Villa, and an almost peaceful night in the campsite. The sheep had set their alarms slightly later, rocking up at 5:30 instead, with bells clanging and baa’ing happily.
The morning saw the weather breaking, and with it clouds of midges, however we just managed to strike camp before the rain started.
The final trip in the ferry was a bit wet, so as two of our party left to travel back via Copenhagen it was a damp farewell as the remaining four retraced their steps on the fast cat back to the UK.
What a fantastic weekend, thank-
Change of outfit!
