Under grey skies we strolled over to Horley train station and made the short journey to the town of Crawley. Mandy hit the shops and Rob took a stroll around the town.
On a murky Suday morning we returned to Gatwick airport to catch the nine hour flight on the Dreamliner to the Caribbean island of Barbados.
We then joined the Thompson Celebration in Bridgetown and as dusk fell on a balmy evening, we slipped out of port and embarked on our Caribbean adventure.
The following evening we attended the Captain's Gala dinner.
