Hello Everyone,
I am sorry I have not been around much. At the end of June I heard that my Father was missing at sea.(Although 80 he was a keen Sailor). Those in the UK may have heard it on the News. The boat was the Midnight Oil and it was found without him off St. Ives. We were told not to expect a body but it did turn up two weeks later. We had the Funeral last week and the whole family have been ill with a virus since.
It has been a bit of a nightmare as my Father was a bit eccentric and very secretive.

I will be back with you all soon. Special love to Clairebear!

Hi Lola,

My deepest sympathy and well wishes to you and your family. It must be a difficult time for you. I guess the only comfort is that he died doing what he loved, and quickly (((((((((((Lola))))))))))

And darn that stupid virus:mad::mad:

Take care and rest up.

Dear Lola, my sincere condolences. It must be an awful time. First of all 2 weeks not really knowing...

I hadn't heard about it but it's very "close to home" in some ways as my Dad is also a bit of an eccentric and was a very keen sailor (that's how we ended up living on a boat for five years despite Mum hating every minute of it). As a child I kind of always imagined that he would one day just go off and continue sailing without us and that one day we would hear that he had been lost at sea.

hugs to you and many healing thoughts,
:grouphug2:

Dear Lola

Sending my sincere sympathy to you and your family.

Coping with such a loss, plus the stress of the virus must be taking it all out of you. I hope you all get better soon.

Thank you all very much. Pam, Yes the boat started out from Scotland,he had just bought that particular one.

Getting the boat back down here will be a headache as it is still in Cornwall, but the Police there have been wonderful. So helpful.
