Despite all good intentions to head on out to the Big Blue again, I had to radio in for a tow this morning when I discovered my electrics were up the creek and nothing worked. I couldn’t decided whether I was glad or not that it happened so close to the start but, once ashore and munching merrily on all things tasty and fresh I was very happy to be back in Freo’ getting everything shipshape. So, worry ye not, all is well – the electrics are being tweaked and nuzzled back into line and I will be looking to head out again as soon as I can.
Meanwhile, I will restock on fresh stuff, do all my washing and catch up with emails again!
Thanks to everyone for all the messages of support and advice etc – glad to know I am responsible for many lost work hours round the world as you all take bets on which part of the ocean I will be in next. No jokes about women drivers please ! My trip down South has taught me a whole lot, battered me, invigorated me, enlightened me and reinforced my confidence in both my own and Dippers’ abilities. Happy happy days indeed.
