As I berthed in Marina Parque das Nações on this glorious day, I was met by some amazing staff and I thought yes, this is the place to stay.
“Tie up your boat and join us”
João Paulo and Antonio did say,
so I walked up to the office
It would have been silly to disobey.
Take a sit and rest Douglas,
then you can let us know,
why you have come to Lisbon
and where you plan to go.
The stories started flowing
as did the bottles of beer,
I was made to feel so welcome
and the boys were so sincere.
To my boat now I must go,
the day was sunny, glorious and breezy.
No, no, sit longer Dougie,
just stay and take it “easy”.
You have all made me so welcome,
the two Luis and Raquel, Catarina and Nélia, not forgetting “the boss” Filipa, you all get so well.
A massive thanks are also given from my partner Janette and me, she was overwhelmed with everyone kindness, to Marina Parque das Nações.
The staff are a huge asset.
So as I set off on my journey and sadly leave you all behind
always remember “take it easy”
and heartfelt thanks for being so kind.
Love y Regards
Janette y Dougie
