The anticipation…

… is driving me crazy!

It’s Lucy here, Sarah’s fiancee. It’s 0915 on Saturday morning and we (Mylenne who is hosting us and Carol who secretly drove 10 hours up from Chatham as a surprise to greet Sarah) are sat round the kitchen table having a coffee and eating breakfast. At 02:00 this morning the time of Sarah’s arrival changed from 7am to 11am EST as the Federal Oshima has to be on the anchor for a few hours while they wait for a pilot to navigate the locks.

I flew in Thursday evening to Montreal, and my first time in Quebec, (I think Sarah wants me to have visited every Canadian province before the year is up) and we spent the day decorating the house and stocking up on gin.

Getting ready for Sarah!

Getting ready for Sarah!

The excitment is unbearable, I haven’t been able to sleep since 5am so have  exhausted a TV series on my laptop and watched the sunrise. The weather yesterday was raining and grey, but today, it must have received the memo, the sun is shining brightly sat in the bluest of skies.

It’s time… we are off!!!!!!!!!

    Best of luck for a grand reunion.

  7. Sarah – I just want to say that your supporters are 100% behind you and your decisions. What started out as a unique adventure honouring your father and raising vital funds for wonderful charities, turned out in the end to be an extraordinary love story. Either way – every way, it is – you are – completely inspirational. To bale out before a hurricane is a triumph of good decision-making: mere egomaniacs would have stayed put – and probably paid the consequences…

    So thank you for your courage, determination, level-headedness, and cheerfulness in the face of adversity: you are an incredible role model and we salute you!
