A quick trip up to the farm to see my folks (Charlie and Jill). Got to catch up with lots of family and friends. Caught a cane fire or two and got to play some golf. I had forgotten how beautiful the north is in winter. Shorts and t-shirts all the way!
Burning the cane for harvest
Horse paddock and cane fields
Epic scenery Boofy (the 9th child) meeting Iona Flash. Here’s hoping she runs like the flash!
Who knew there was so much stuff to organise when you decide to take an extended sabbatical! But we did it! The house is ready to rent, my car sold and all of our belongings are in storage.
And we thought it wouldn’t fit!!! (Well we did have to get rid of a couple of items at the last minute)
Welcome to our “diary” and I say diary because Sarah and I are going to use this blog to document what is going to be an absolutely amazing trip of discovery and possibly even enlightenment. We are going to use this site to create a record of the sights we see and will also write a few bits and bobs as to how we are feeling and what we are thinking!!And I say “welcome” because we want to share it with you and with the wonders of modern technology we can (blogging will probably be out of date before we finish our trip anyway)
We don’t want to brag and we don’t want to boast, we are unbelievably lucky to be able to do this and we hate to say it but we are planning on having the trip of a lifetime!!!
I hope you enjoy reading the blog!!
Just a few quick snaps to remind us how lucky we have it back at home
