Sailing 2012

It dawns on me, now that we’ve come in from our last day of sailing, that this is the last time I’ll be sailing until 2013. Sounds so far away…

I’m more burned than ever, but I’ve loved every hour we’ve spent at sea. I’ve finally just got the hang of the ropes and knots- mind you I’ve lost most of the skin from my palms in doing so… haha.

It’s been sunny and rainy and hot and cold and so very, very good.

Now, all the sheets and sails are away. The ropes are tidy and all that’s left to do is pack for the flight tomorrow.

Didn’t see any dolphins today, just penguins 🙂

My boat shoes have officially fallen to pieces, I’ve been trailing bits of sun-faded purple rubber all over the boat as I’ve run about to secure the mooring lines and all that.

Nothing much else to say. I’m covered in salt- feel a bit like the “stalwart Odysseus”, except, not scaring poor royal maids with my wild nakedness, nor pissing off the gods for blinding their sons… Think I might head for an early shower to cool off the burns to be honest. I have no clue what to wear home that won’t chafe the burns while at the same time keeping me warm… Gah. Clothes. Why.

I have done NADA revision. All that “focus” has vanished and I have barely anything done. Well, guess what I’m going to be doing on the flight home!! Eeesh. What fun. -.-

Well, I have gone a bit camera crazy so here are a lot more photos, enjoy!

Book 3: “The World of Odysseus”

Having studied “The Odyssey” (nowhere near as much as I’d like to…) in my GCSEs, I think this book will be one I’ll have to borrow and read through at home 😀

Bernard Knox is fabulous for anything Ancient Greek!!
