Hi Everyone, 

Well,  here we are approaching November 2022.  Life is good, health appears stable and we are enjoying ourselves.  We did manage a nice sailing holiday down to the west country, spending time in Torquay, Dartmouth, Salcombe, the Yealm,  Fowey and the River Fal.  We were going to head out to the Helford River and on to the Scillies, but Barbara hurt her knee climbing in and out of the dinghy, so we decided to make a pleasant cruise home, running from the Fal to Salcombe (hiding there for a few days in bad weather) then round to Dartmouth followed by a dash to Portland for a night.   The last day sail back from Portland to Island Harbour was very pleasant even if we didn’t manage to get to the Needles Channel until HW Portsmouth for a bumpy, wind over tide, engine thrumming up through into the Solent.  The rest of the summer has been spent messing about in the Solent.  livepage.apple.com )

Keep safe

Best wishes
