The bonfire and moon seen from DYC
Yesterday evening I walked to the sailing club to eat nibbles (yummeee) and watch fireworks - set off on the other side of the river. The star of the show was the moon - rising over the trees and reflecting in the calm river. I went to bed much too late and got up late this morning. Fatigue continues - I did not race today inspite of ideal conditions (ie lots of wind).
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.
