Pleased you liked the photos Doug, hopefully we'll get some of her sailing one of these days. You'll be disappointed to hear that I didn't dress the sails. the fabric, polycotton comes in a huge variety of colours at a little over £2 a metre.
We haven't had as much rain as further East in the valleys above Cardiff, There's been a big drop in temperature but as yet no snow. Actually, we get very little, we've lived here six years and have never seen snow lay for more than a couple of hours and it's always been very light. It can be on the mountains a mile or two away to the East, but we just don't get it.
My sister, in the Jura, has been complaining of very high winds and has lost three very tall trees in the last week or so.
I continue to work on my crash tender, but all the time, am planning the next Thames Barge.
Regards to you and Gisela.
