Friday - pottering around in Titchmarsh
The Backwaters at high water - viewed from the marina - complete with a Mirror dinghy and Felixstowe container port beyond.
Today was sunny and warm - although the wind is cold. I cleared up, dried wet clothes, shook out the bedding and similar useful things. I felt exhausted all day so walked along the banks round the marina and looked out across the Backwaters, watched boats come in and such like.Lots of rests. Carvery for supper again - justified because it is good value but also quite hard to cook varied food on a small boat and away from food shops.
Woodbridge, East Anglia - formerly North East England, United Kingdom
My web log has four strands. It started as a simple sailing log of my voyage from the North east of England in my Southerly 95, LA Girl.
As I came further south, the weather and my health deteriorated, so the second strand started, which is a commentary on various beaches and places that I visited.
The third strand is about lung cancer. I was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer in August 2009, having been taken to hospital in Ipswich by ambulance - unable to breath. I eventually returned to my boat in Woodbridge and then came ashore to a nice flat by the station. The fourth strand is about life in Woodbridge. I am now sailing a Jaguar 21 called lookfar. I am also sailing dinghies again and now have a Streaker. Note that sailing in the river is harder than sailing at sea.
Lorna died in 2013. This blog remains as a reminder of her wonderful character and life.
