The Doom Painting in St.Thomas's Church, Salisbury

21 March 2020 | St. Thimas's Church, Salisbury
Around 1470 this amazing Doom Painting was painted in St. Thomas's but then was covered with whitewash during the Reformation. In 2019 a big restoration programme has restored the vibrant colours and it seems to sparkle in the sunlight. Doom paintings were illustrated with the colours being applied to wet concrete making the colours last as they were embedded into the walls rather than being painted on the surface. Doom paintings typically depict the Last Judgement.

Montacute House - National Trust

Apparently Montacute House is one of the most visited NT properties in the UK.

It is an Elizabethan masterpiece with stunning gardens and a long wide tree-lined drive through the park. The owner Sir Edward Phelips was a lawyer, a politician and the first Speaker of the House of Commins in 1601. He had the house built as his summer holiday home where he lavishly entertained which was his "get away" from the smelly streets in London in the summer.

Montacute House - National Trust and "bring your doggie" day

23 February 2020 | Montacute House
My god daughter, Catherine's parents live in Devon not too far from Exeter. We decided to meet up half way between Salisbury and their home and visit Montacute House. As it was bring your doggie day it was a great excuse to take Wilfred their cockapoo for a ramble in the parkland.

Wilfred came on a tour around the house too and is such a live wire, he has a lovely friendly disposition.

I went by train through very pretty Wiltshire and Somerset countryside. Montacute House is near Yeovil.
Vessel Name: Njord of London
Vessel Make/Model: Malo 39 Classic
Crew: Vic Farhi & Clare Harrison
About: Learnt to sail together and the first sailing experience was in Lanzarote in 2005. We then bought Mandarin, a Bavaria 39 and in June 2012 bought Njord, a Malo 39 from the Baltic.
Extra: As attributed to Mark Twain: Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bow lines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Two weeks of blissful sailing gently around the Ionian in 2019. High season for chartered and family holidays yet we still managed to find some less frequented bays to drop the hook
