Defrosting Frozen Sailors

January 30th, 2011 · 4 Comments

Any advice on how to defrost two sailors from the coldest December on record in UK. Does a BBQ on a beach work in New Zealand work? Off back to Whangarei just north of Auckland on Monday 7th February.

What a fabulous time we have had visiting so many of our family and friends in Scotland and the South East of England. The snow may have been cold, well Baltic actually, but it was very pretty. Not many visitors from abroard will have seen the Highlands in its winter whites or Kew Gardens in a white out!

We have set up a virtual London landline telephone. This will cost you the normal cost of a call to a London landline and no more. Skype will transfer to the country we are in and forward to the mobile we set up in any new country (cost to us less than 20p a minute). Skype will ring the computer first and then the mobile and then return to the computer for voice mail so those wanting to leave a message may have to listen to a few rings. Number is up and running now and transferring to our UK Mobile. If you want the number tell us.

    Just spare a thought for the Scottish sailors waiting forlornly for spring.

    Fair winds and kind seas!

    We were worried that you were in Queensland for the tropical storm. It is good to see you are still in the UK!
    Happy return to NZ.

    Obviously don’t log into roaming the oceans often enough !! Glad to hear you got home for a while and shared our December in Scotland !! A December to beat all winters. David, this is what you missed by not coming down to Port Edgar when you were home ….

    Hello there,

    We are just eating fish & chips at Rick Stein’s in preparation for moving Gravity Boots from Falmouth eastwards. Made a good passage from Cardiff to Falmouth Easter weekend. We have some bubbly ready to toast the royal wedding tomorrow! Lots of love to you all.
