Graptolite is at 36:49.20N 028:18.56E in Turkey and the skipper is in
Berlin, Tuesday 6th July 2010
Holly and Thom turned up eventually and we did lots of tourist stuff
including canoeing the canals at Spreewald while eating gherkins; drinking
cocktails on a tropical beach inside a Zeppelin hangar and watching the
World Cup (England v Slovenia) at another beach in the city which was
definitely non-tropical. We also had a drive out to Hamburg for Heike's
birthday, staying at the Hotel Atlantic.
My old mum had a birthday as well reaching 80 last week so both Heike and I
were in Blackburn for the celebrations along with Leanne and Marcus and
boys. I was struggling with the flu, or something, which will teach me to
keep up-to-date with British diseases. I slept until last Thursday, some of
it at Johnny and Alison's, then struggled down to Liverpool Airport, back to
Berlin and slept some more. I'm getting better thank you.
I had intended to check up on Grapto this week but the thought of
antifouling in 50 degrees is putting me off for some reason.
