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.

Drained

Today I switched off the pumps and drained the ship pool. It is a big blow to everyone. Who would have thought that Cammel Laird, the pride of British ship building, would have designed such a disaster just before they became insolvent in 2001. In the meantime, it remains up to our own engineers and welders to design and install an ingenious method of keeping the waves down and stopping the water slopping out of the pool during the slightest of rolls, even whilst docked in port.
