Title: British summer falls into Autumn

Just like Labour Day in the USA the August Bank Holiday in the UK heralds the end of ‘summer’ as we know it. The Brent Geese are beginning to show up as the holidaymakers pack up and go home. Time to head for the sun.  Our flights are booked albeit a little later than we would have liked.  So we’ll be more than ready to return to ‘Ajaya’ and hope there will be no nasty surprises awaiting us in Florida to delay our departure to the turquoise waters of the Bahamas.
 
The last few months have flown by as will the next few weeks.  We’ve been busy most days not only out on the water (see the previous two blogs) but by the water when not spending time with family or dealing with other necessary ‘stuff’!
