It's 05:05 and I sneak out on deck to capture a few photos. It almost makes me feel guilty that I will shortly be starting "Arthur's" engines. I remove window covers, set-up the GPS/Chartplotter, gather the paper charts, locate binoculars, gather camera, put on PFDs, etc. Meanwhile, Mary is prepping breakfast (usually a pot of tea-leaf tea and some brown soda bread) which we will have en-route. The previous evening she prepared lunch...sambos...egg mayonnaise (with chive) and ham & tomato! And a flask of tea as well. And then it's simply a case of pulling in shorepower cable, undoing lines and gently slipping off the pontoon.
