I’m sailing east across the Irish Sea on a lovely calm day into brilliant sunlight.
The words of the New Riders of The Purple Sage song “On My Way Back Home” never seemed more appropriate.
Sky is shining, time is flying, bird is on the wing
On my way back home
Flying to the sun
It’s days like these that make a life.
The tender that took me back to land at the end of my stint aboard the radioship Jenni Baynton was somewhat larger than the run of the mill supply vessel.
Thanks to the enthusiasm and helpfull stance of a local ferry captain, Radio Seagull / Waddenzee is able to make use of regular ferry runs when no dedicated suply boat is scheduled.
The skill with which Captain Freddie brings his car ferry alongside the radioship is matched by his warm welcome for members of the radioship’s crew using his service.
Below are some shots taken as I was leaving the Jenni Baynton on Friday afternoon.
Don’t forget I will have a full photo update on Sunday night.
