Still Sailing



The cats and I went walking in the early evening light, over the hills and far away to sunset.
In winter, when it snowed, we took a boat out to sail on an ocean of white. Yesterday we found the boat, storm tossed in heather and lit by low sun.
It looked beautiful.

How glorious to find it again. Did you set it sail with a wish? I hope it came true if you did. We set boats sailing on our canal at New Year with hopes written on them.
Looking forward to your new book x

How wonderful! I love things when they mearge into their surrounds showing their own story of time.

It really has survived the elements. Brave little boat.

Wonderful - signs of hope come when most needed and often in the most unlikely guise!
