There is still so much to do, but one trip out and I'm revived, happy and willing to do the rest. Here are the photos with my pirate Koos at the helm. But of course, I had my own turn.
|Koos, as I first met him - a skipper|
not a photographer
|Look at that roof. Took me hours to paint :)|
|The mighty Gent-Terneuzen sea canal|
|Look what's coming up behind|
|Lovely to be on the water|
|And so it came past...|
|Yes, I love a turn at the wheel as well!|
|The crossing. it's a big canal and the commercials are|
huge, so getting to the other side can be fun.
That said, things are looking up with the books. I'm so chuffed and honoured to have received the Silver Award for The Skipper's Child in The Wishing Shelf Awards and just as delighted to have been nominated in the e-festival of words for best memoir for Watery Ways. Harbour Ways is becoming relatively popular too and my Eccentrics are drawing some regular interest. My new writing projects are taking shape - slowly, it's true, but they are coming on. And I am getting stuck into my final dissertation now, the end of which should see me with that long awaited MA. Busy? You could say that...
