Shimna - SHIMNA prepares for 4 days sail!!!!!

Have organised the provisioning today , visiting various shops in Largos it's great that we have the car . Unfortunately the water pump still not fixed , though it has arrived. We need to test the new water maker and have shake down sail out of the marina . We hope to off to Las Palmas , the middle of next week . At the moment it seems two steps forward one back . We are not suffering though we are staying in Dave's lovely villa, with pool. Uncle Dave is getting frustrated,
Well we all are . We now have to store all this food , and remember where it is, a little plan is called for . We've come up with a menu and based our food shopping around that, plus extras. We also need treats , plus the good old (ginger biscuits) for those times when another day at sea seems all too much . A nice cuppa and dunking gingers yummy . We came across Biscay in July ,
the sea state was rough, we ate ginger nuts and crisps for 3 days . Even a spicy sausage casserole couldn't tempt us . Let's hope we have good weather to Las Palmas . This is Dave's 4thAtlantic crossing and my second , you'd think we would know better . ( no it is great with good company )
