A few idle thoughts whilst waiting for the tide...........
As well as our new cruising friends Adrian and Jane of Colne Rose, we also keep in touch with Carole and Paul of Swallow who left Haslar last June and are now in Ibiza as well as Julian and Karen of Tatsu who left Haslar a couple of weeks after us and are now west of Gijon on their way to the Spanish Rias - all of whom are going quicker than us!!!!
It was Julian who spotted this shop named Stiletto in Gijon - never mind the shop - I want that shopping trolley!!!!! The perfect matching accessory to our canvas work.
We have been sailing together for 18 years and have owned Stiletto for 16 of them. We have exhausted the Solent and the UK South Coast and all the other usual passages: West Country, France, Channel Islands etc. that are available from our home port of Gosport. [...]We embarked on our "Slow Boat to the Med" big adventure, having sailed out of Gosport in April 2017, with our final destination being the island of Ikaria, in the Eastern Aegean - where Andreas has his family roots, before going on to explore the hundreds of other stunning Greek island locations - we could be away a while!
