Having arrived in Europe we thought we were finally able to relax … Unfortunately no such luck! The past week has seen the placid shores of Wales savaged by a series of storms and wind gusts that have left the land in devastation with entire suburbs flooded in the north. While we have been fairly snug here in Milford Haven in South Wales we have continually had our hopes of palm trees and tropical waters dashed by the gales pushing into the Celtic Sea from the Atlantic.
Yet finally it looks like respite is in sight. The forecast for the next few days promises solid northerly breezes, which, as it happens, is exactly what we have been hoping for. So time to finish taping on the keyboard, start knocking on wood … and head South. Next time we tie up we hope to be in Gijon, Spain.
