Run Aground: April onwards 2006.
Well, we are now grounded back in Somerset.   The last two weeks have passed in a whirl of paperwork and suitcases.  The girls are back at school, we are back in a house, our dog is just all feels rather strange, and of course very cold.  We have forgotten how to live with the cold.....I find myself thinking that I don't feel very well, and then realize that it is just that I am freezing.  I am sitting in a garden shed freezing right now, tapping this in.  It is actually an office with an internet connection,(thanks Tim).   Chris said yesterday,'It feels like time to pull up the anchor and move on,' though we have only been back two weeks.  I don't think the barn is especially seaworthy,  but the good ship Sarah Grace is safely chocked up in Grenada, so we will have to wait until our return to her at the end of the year.
The weirdest thing is that it feels as though we have been doing this absolutely epic thing, the last 12 months feel as though they have spanned at least five years, and yet all is just as we left it at home.....
Here are a series of photographs of the Sarah Grace coming out, with her bemused crew watching...........
So here she is in her resting position.  We hope to be back sailing before too long, during which time this diatribe will continue.  xxx Soph
