When we were farewelled, we did leave the marina berth, but we were within a few hours sail of a reasonable anchorage before really
leaving. Stopping like that allowed us to stow all the gifts that people had brought. Even though we had asked people to only give us music
, they still brought many other items.
So, what I'm wanting to get across is the idea that you and they need you to go, and I hope you have a quiet, just the two of you celebration planned for the first night out.
