Hello?
And the remote report is...….?  ;D
All I've heard from my other half is that it has rained enough that he hasn't had to water the garden while I'm away! I'm back in FV on Saturday, looking forward to seeing you in a few weeks.  :)

The Clipper WG is referring to passing Caleta at 17:15 The Star Flyer heading for Gran Canaria, La Gomera, then 15 days at sea until she arrives in The Bahamas on 25th November.

Not the greatest photo I have ever taken I  had intended to be on the beach, but circumstances decided I would photograph it from our back terrace.
