Our son's brother-in-law is in a new Boy Band and on 'Britain's got Talent', winning the semi final last Monday. Their first audition a few weeks ago was a great success. We only got hear about this and see the U-tube videos just before we left the BVIs. In their audition they sang a great arrangement of 'Stars' from the musical Les Miserables. So we downloaded the sound track from the film just before leaving and last night, sitting at the back of the cockpit, in full view of a clear sky full of bright stars from horizon to horizon listened to Russell Crowe singing 'Stars' as the boat glided so smoothly across the ocean. There can't be many better places to listen to it! (Although it has to be said that Russell Crowe's version was nowhere near as good as their arrangement with 5 singers.) Fingers crossed for them in the final. So it can be quite moving and romantic being out in the middle of the ocean with a star studded sky. However, having to get up at 03.00 for my second night watch when in a deep sleep soon brings you back down to earth (or sea in our case)!
