May Day and no marches...

We have rounded the heel of Italy and are resting in the harbour (well, one of the marinas) of the Italian Gallipoli.
Beautiful weather and brilliant sunsets.
Our crew (me included) are somewhat stymied by twisted ankle, torn tendon, and intestinal bugs.
But as I lie feeling slightly seasick during our long crossings from port to port, I have much time to muse and meditate.
So that's good, even if my pleasing conclusions don't get written down and just waft away on the wind...
Today is 5 May, Liberation Day in the Netherlands. And yesterday was Remembrance Day, recalling all those killed, murdered, and in other ways who died, in all the wars of the past centuries... (more or less).
We lowered our boat's flag to half mast and stood silent for two minutes.
We do not forget.

Wonderful weather day after day (they say, perfect for sailing!) and I sit happily, confined to the boat because of my sprained foot.
Soon we will sail on to Taranto; hoping for dances...

  1. The beginning bloggers often ask me how to make a book review I can advise some tips for the beginners: 1. Pick a book that you would like to review. 2. Get to know your book. 4.Research the author. 5. Read the preface or introduction if the book has one. That is only a few methods to make the right review, I did it so many times that I even invented my own method. It is not a complex task for me as at custom writing service Writers Per Hour I used to do that very often - so offer to this service and I'll share my latest writing methods with you.
