Not Forgotten……


3 years ago today we lost Carla our fantastic Black Labrador.  Despite all that has happen since then, we still miss her. As we move round the house and garden we seem to instinctively walk round her.  In the kitchen, as we work away preparing meals, you still sense that  warm Black shadow, that gentle pant of expectation that something might just drop of the the preparation table.  Always anxious to join us on our explorations and always providing a warm welcome to everyone.

Silent Sunday…… Crossing the Invisible Line


For those of us who live a long way from the Artic Circle there is something rather special, indeed magical about crossing that invisible line.  Despite the fact we have crossed several times, that feeling of a degree of reverence still applies.

Here we crossed the line, off the Norwegian Coast, with still along way to go to Tromso

However far your journey is….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
