HMS Victoria

Another month has passed before I come dragging in here, shamefaced and knock-kneed as a little schoolboy: “Sorry sir it won’t happen again…”

Actually, I thought it was high time I posted a few pictures of the boat. Yes, the Victoria clan are now embarked on adventures of a nautical bent. Namely, we’ve bought a live-aboard Dutch barge, currently moored in west London. Surprised? Not as much as we were, I assure you…

Here she lies, a converted 1904 sailing Klipper:

She has elegant lines (and a fine dress sense:)



…And in a word, we’re chuffed. Nuts, yes, maybe, but chuffed.

    Mary, the boat looks ‘just wonderful.’ I am so longing to visit!

      I am writing. I’d be finished, too, if it wasn’t for the ‘flu striking down the Victoria household for the past few days! One and a half chapters left to go. A rather pivotal one and a half chapters, however.

      Then, rewrites…
