Tomorrow (Tuesday) I am heading off here to see Rhoda - by way of seeing Aidan in London and flying to Toulouse on Wednesday. I have been tested for flying and am apparently 'fit to fly'. I may be offline but I am hoping to get an internet connection there.
Map of the area around Rhoda and Doug's place
Rhoda lives near Bagnere de Bigorre, which is where the main roads meet. I think their place is about where the word Bagnere is on the map. This is rural living, with vegetables, trees, chickens, sheep, pigs, dog and cats, not to mention the wildlife and vermin. The weather is said to be forecast to be good. Their adventures are here - http://laviealapetiteferme.blogspot.fr/
A bit different from urban living.
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.
