Seven months reads a long time but it feels like it has floated away now we spend our first full day on the Staffs & Worcs Canal ( Staffordshire & Worcester Canal for those uninitiated to shortening the long words) after reversing out of our home marina, Ashwood Marina yesterday.
In brief, follows a pictorial history of my 7-month peregrination. My feet were involved in the daily dog walks in Spain, then traversing the International Airports particularly Gatwick and Dubai and only mentioning Alicante, Brisbane, Auckland, and Melbourne because they were in that long haul can of worms. Long haul travel does not hold its appeal for me, anymore, but the light at both ends of the tunnel is well worth it. I’m Kiwi and I hold my homeland dear. I am a 5 year old water gypsy and I love sharing this and España with Chris and Della (our ‘chica guapa’).

I arrived back in England, a week ago, it was a gruelling 30 hours from Auckland to London Gatwick followed by a further 5 hours to get to NbDolcieBlue. There is no romantic fantasy in that but “YES” to my reality. Dream on....
DB is fit for purpose. DB is lovely. DB is real. DB is my home with Chris and Della.
