This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

Pool is christened

On Monday afternoon, the pool was christened by the Deckies and Engineers who worked so hard over the last couple of months to finish it's installation. The rest of the crew of the Africa Mercy wait with baited breaths for it to be opened up to the rest of us; I understand there remain one or two issues of signage and protocol to be sorted before then. In the meantime, the green net you can see in the pool has become a permanent fixture; it is weighed down with heavy chains and has become a very successful wave-dampener, which allows us to top the water levels back up again without losing to much over the side. The kids finish school for the summer on Thursday, so we really hope the pool will be operational by then! Olly
