Pottering – Part 18

Great Grandchildren at Play

Recent arrival Great Grandson
In another four days my cruise with ‘Sandpiper’ will enter its fourth week, and yet I have only sailed on six days of seventeen. Times ashore have been good - even this interlude at home while I await fair winds. I had intended returning to the boat tomorrow, but for most of the Tuesday there will be heavy rain, and it’s not much fun sitting in the confines of ‘Sandpiper’s’ cabin. I shall definitely make my way back to Sovereign Yacht Harbour on Wednesday, because there could be a chance that I may be able to sail to Newhaven or Brighton on Thursday.

One of the benefits of being away from the boat is that my hands are healing. I can feel my fingertips and they are no longer painful when I do things like buttoning my shirt. At one time, when they were at their worst, I could hardly pull the zip of my anorak! I can’t remember having such sore hands because of sailing. They have been sore before because of sailing, but not as painful.
