4th February 2009
I am late in writing this as we have not been up to much
since the last entry apart from avoiding the rain!
It has been really very stormy here with winds of 50+ knots
last weekend and torrential rain too.
We have managed to keep up the swimming 3 times a week but I
have lapsed on the gym front as each time I go I seem to strain a muscle in my
right leg. (well that’s my excuse anyway!)
We have met with friends and been out for supper a couple of
times; much of the discussion right now is about passage planning for the
coming season and where boats are going for next winter. We have been able to
acquire some charts of the Turkish and Greek areas we plan to visit later in
the year from a chap who is making his way back to Scotland and no longer needs
In addition I have been busy making chutney and marmalade
with the incredibly cheap local produce! The pressure cooker has come into its
own here. A friend has made lemon curd so we have done a swap on the produce. I
have also got plans to make some hatch covers to protect the glass from the UV
rays. Another friend has some spare material so when I get a dry period I will
be measuring up and getting cracking on these.
That’s it for now folks.
I will write the next report when we get back from our trip
