2011 – Our Year Summary
January, February, March and April. Yachties generally do a sum up of the year. We have done it in pictures and not too many words.
June and July
September and October
November and December
It may appear that we slowed down at the end of November and stayed put in Beaufort, North Carolina for all of December. Well this year was our busiest yet. In twenty seven weeks we were actually sailing we managed to visit twenty six islands in the Caribbean, plus a day trip to Mustique. We flew to Canada. We then motored through eight states in the USA bringing our mileage total for the year to 3224.48. We flew to the UK for a home visit. Fabulous to see all the family and celebrate Adam and Jenny getting married in September; they are expecting our sixth grandchild (congratulations to you both) at the end of June 2012, (hopefully on my birthday, but I don’t mind two days later on Uncle Alex and Aunty Kate’s birthday). A few days after our call from Adam and Jenny with their news – Martin and Kim rang to say how excited they were to tell us about our seventh grandchild being en route AND they hope to provide a little bundle of pink, fingers crossed, but at this rate if it’s a little boy we are well on the way to a full team. We have for the time being named them Sixymill and Milliesept. How DELIGHTED ARE WE.
ALL IN ALL NO WONDER I’M TIRED
WE’VE SPREAD OUR WINGS SO FAR – THEY ACHE
