Uwe’s farewell part was a monumental bash. Held in the dive bar (naturally) and round the pool (as well as in it). We started with some under water drinking of which Uwe is an experienced instructor. Several plastic bottles of beer were consumed and PJ was thoughtful enough to bring a hip flask for those who fancied a chaser. After a barbecue Uwe was presented with a couple of mementoes including a suitably engraved tankard. Gordon and Evelyn had not only flown from Bahrain, but brought several bottles of bubbly with them. These were duly opened and shared around. Some of Uwe’s Mercedes colleagues presented him with a photo album of some of his desert exploits. Things got a bit hazy after that but we did have another swim at around 1 or 2am (I know by my wet clothes).
All in all, an excellent evening.
