  1. Hey owl and cat we have just visited the website for the first time and what a treat it is! Both of you, your writing is so descriptive and readable, but your first voyage certainly sounded like a baptism of fire. Hope you are both well and rested and we can’t wait for the next instalment. We will send the link to many. X Annie and Noel
