Sunday 8th January 2023. The boat and the weather has taken up all our time over the last few days, hence the silence from our side, except for the children who are following our progress! It’s a joy to bring these mascots to life and link up with the favourite cuddly toys of children in hospital.

Seeing nature in the raw is as powerful as ever and yet each time it is different.

I am beginning to understand the power of attraction of these regions. Nature cleanses you, purifies you and sends you a message… the immortal words of Alain Bashung take on their true meaning and Sir Ernst beats time to this tune.
