Satisfaction is had from writing a blog by knowing there are readers who enjoy reading it. Over the past two or more years I have kept an eye on the number of page loads, unique visitors and returning visitors to the website. On all counts they have increased. Between 60 and 80 regulars faithfully log on every day. Unique visitors generally amount to over 300 a day, and page loads can be between 500 and 700.
Statistics are from http://statcounter.com for which I am very grateful, especially as they are provided free of charge.
Current popular pages are:

One thing to be noted is that all of the popular pages have as their subject matters, yachts, boats, or sailors.
Without readers, doing a blog is almost a pointless exercise; therefore I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and to wish you a very Happy Christmas.
I shall be offline for the next two or three days as I take a festive break.
