A handful of snaps from a recent photo shoot with Gulliver and I. The sea was too bouncy to let us put him on the water safely (trailers and waves make tricky business for launching and landing), but the spray and wind made for some fun stuff.
In other news, the weather isn’t looking favourable for the end of the week. A few more days on land yet… Meanwhile Ricardo and I are doing the last bits of tinkering – going through every piece of kit again to make sure that it is vital and ready for the ocean. These are exciting times. It is great having him here, so that I can switch off a little bit and relax – he understands the headspace needed for a solo sea voyage and the emotions of getting ready to go. The food shipment should be released from Customs today, so we can soon start preparing that and packing Gulliver. Seven months of supplies into a tiny wee boat. My motto? ‘If it has to fit, it will.’
