Hi everyone,
Just wanted to let you know that since we experienced the Silhouetters' Roll Call, we have never been happy with any other roll call!! We are spoilt unto all eternity! And what is more, we want to stay spoilt!! Alas.... it doesn't work that way! We are booked on the Connie for the winter passage through the Suez Canal .... and it's as activating as a sleeping pill. Sorry we are not waiting for you, Judy, but we decided we'd better visit Petra sooner than later. Just wish you were coming with us!
Greetings to all you great people!

Morven,

You rock! We don't suppose there is any chance you two would be in Scotland at the end of next May? We are doing four days in Edinburgh before we go see friends in Leeds and then head to Dublin to sail on Reflection to Iceland. Would love to see you if you were back in that vicinity.

Hi Jim and Kathleen,
We never plan as far ahead nowadays, but we will certainly keep your dates in mind. I lost my only brother this week aged 73, and my 97-year-old mother doesn't get any younger. She still lives very independently in her own house, but I have to be sure one of my friends or one of the children is there for her when we are away. If you have questions about any aspect of your Edinburgh stay, please don't hesitate to ask. You have my email address and phone number. May is usually a wonderful month in Scotland! And who knows....maybe we'll pop over to have a dram with you!

It was a nice trip/cruise/voyage but what I liked better was the life-long friends we made. And getting to spend almost three weeks with my brother and his bride. And all the Silhoutters who we still sail with and will sail with in the future. Not sure what part we loved the most.

That's one big photo of me that Bob kindly posted! The shirt in my hand is for a cruiser from the UK who wanted shirts for her and her DH, but found it difficult to easily order from there.

Bob, let's see a photo of you & Holly in your EDGE garb!!

Two years has gone by so quickly. But look forward to seeing several Silhouetters on the Eclipse next March and April around the Horn. Hopefully see more of you whenever.
