Merry Solstice 2012!

"Light is returning, even though this is the darkest hour, No one can hold back the dawn.." ~Charlie Murphy

 Merry Solstice to you all as we turn the wheel of the year! In Ma Nature's infinite wisdom--even though winter has just now officially begun--the days will grow longer. Now is the time to celebrate the return of the Sun! May solstice bells ring in our hearts throughout this coming year, reminding us of what has passed and what is yet to come.  Blessed Be!
The Water Road at dawn...
where two pheasants rise from a mist wreathed bridge...
and the Sun rises on Winter Solstice!

Hi Les & Jaq

Hope you have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

A great choice of song, always like a bit of Jethro Tull. Hope to catch up with you soon.

Hi Jo,
I hope your Co-Cola ham turned out yummy! We are set with plenty of wood, coal, a full tank of diesel, a full tank of water, and a full larder. I am baking and Les is installing 2 small fans to move the heated air through the boat. We are warm, dry, safe and happy and we wish the same to you and Keith! We will be on the lookout for you along the cut this next year.
Love Jaq and Les
