P_____S TO ASCENSION

30 June 2012 | ASCENSION ISLAND
DAVID

Harkening back to the mid Atlantic and the fascinating island of Ascension.
Notes:In the footage of the beach in front of Shearwater as we arrive you will notice what look like tire tracks, they are in fact the 'footprints' of the turtles ascendlng and descending the beach the night before. In the next video we will visit that beach and see them in action

Colin Wells is the Governor of Ascension to whom Lyn Rattle and me were delivering the p_____s on our royal mission.

The dead trigger fish on the way in to Ascension were killed by escaping volcanic gases or so it was told to me although no seemed really sure.

Although we are now in Florida, I wanted you to be able to see a little of those unique islands in the middle of the S. Atlantic.

So, back-up about 5000 miles...

About:
Mango is a smart, funny, sensitive and totally unique wheaton/sheepdog. . He is my partner on this patently undoglike voyage but remains cheerful about the whole affair. [...]
Extra: Shearwater is a 47 foot, very sleek and light catamaran. She is part of a fleet of 11 that were built - its a sister ship of Shearwater that holds the unofficial speed record. 31 knots! Of the this fleet, only one has flipped...so we are on the side of good odds!
