It's been over three years since our Indian adventure - and our last post we are ashamed to say!

Rose is now five and there has been an addition to our number: Rose's little brother William who is already two.

We upgraded our boat 'Windrush' last year and now have a much roomier Beneteau 323 which we keep on Lake Windermere in the English Lake District, easily one of the most beautiful locations in the world, even if the weather is fickle.

After a couple of years of working too hard, we have decided to take an extended holiday and use up some of the ridiculous amount of accrued holiday.
The plan is to spend the next nine weeks sailing all the way around the United Kingdom, and we will share our experience through this blog. We hope you enjoy following our journey.

Jon, Kate, Rose and William.

Sometimes being woken at 4.30am is a good thing

Rose sensed that something was happening out side at 4.30am so she woke the crew up to investigate. What they found was one of those special scenes that they will remember for a long time. Scotland has very challenging weather sometimes but with it comes some of the most beautiful views you will ever see. If the pictures don't say enough behind the camera was a full rainbow set against a deep pink cloudless sky, can anyone explain that to us?

Glad you finally got some fish, looks yummy! Hope your luck with fishing keeps up and your luck with the weather improves. The photos are absolutly beautiful, I especially like the first one from Rose's selection and the cloud/sail one from 'A good day' but they are all excellent! Missing you all and can't wait to hear about it all when you get back. Lots of love Mol xx

there's been a recent high level of auroral activity.. not sure, but in your part of the world, there's a *fair* chance you may have seen something in that night sky of yours.. rainbow or aurora.. ? ;o)
