Hello again Boatbloggers ®
Over the last few days we have navigated our way from Bora Bora to Beautiful Brentford. Some of it by boat – Bora Bora to Raiatea and Taha’a, then Huahine and on to Tahiti. But most of it with Air France – Tahiti to Vancouver and Paris, and then good old London Town. Air France was quicker but we travelled steerage. The good ship Domini is slower, but we have a First Class Cabin.
So here we are, back in Blighty for Christmas. The views are a bit different,
…and though we love French Polynesia,
…and miss the snorkelling,
…and the eagle rays,
…and finding Nemo,
(Can you see him yet?)
…it’s quite nice being on dry land for a while, having the little luxuries that the average landlubber takes for granted. Like a proper flushing toilet, a shower with unlimited hot water, and marvel of all marvels – a DISHWASHER! Not to mention if I drop my phone it lands on the carpet instead of sinking to thirty fathoms.
But fear not dear reader. TheBoatBlog is not about to become TheBrentfordBlog or even TheBabyBlog – which is jockeying for position – especially now Orson has got his passport and flown back from Spain for Christmas.
“Shame it’s blue Mum.”
Because even here in darkest Brentford we can still get our nautical fix. Rory’s boat is moored just outside our flat.
See you next year when we will be bringing you more thrilling tales of adventure and derring-do on the High Seas.
Ed:- What, no gratuitous sunset?
Oh, go on then…
