Thanks for that Johan.. as long as the electric will run a fan heater we'll be happy... huddled over a wood stove is not good for a nicotine addict..
'Cough.. cough..'

Pity. You'd miss these palm trees featured here.



PS- they are at 54.816072N 8.470573W

And the village is quite proud of them.

Re: Boatman's Latest Adventure

Glad to hear that you are safe and well my friend
It was always going to a bit of a gamble with weather and for once the weather gods must have wanted to give you a small nudge in the ribs and saying "no yet Boatie, wait awhile"

Gives a new slant on the old saw that ports rot ship and sailors!
