On a serious note it is with sadness we have to say our good
friend Pete on Troutbridge has 'come a cropper' in Fiji. I can think of no
gentler way to put it. When we read about his going on the reef we felt sick,
sad and helpless.
Troutbridge can be found by going to the very top of our
blog page, click on 'List of Users' and find the alphabetical listing of all
boats on the site. Start reading at the entry of the 27th of May. We
have always followed Trouters blog as Pete always seemed to be going /
arrived where we had planned to and he became our local knowledge.
We met him for the first time in Barbados just after we crossed the
Atlantic in January 2009. Then again in St Lucia and many a beer under the tree
in Peakes Boatyard, Trinidad.
All we can do is wait for the updates and
hope each time we read one that Trouters is now safe.
Spare Pete and Trouters a thought and
send him a mental hug.
לא מבקשת להקל את הנטל אלא להרחיב כתפיים
This means - ask not for lighter burdens but broader
shoulders. There can be no undoing what has happened; only wish Pete the
strength to see it through.

our friend and Godspeed)
