A segment of the rainbow which I have clutched

Missing this

Missing this world in a way that only Henry Thoreau could describe. Trying to keep things simple, but its tricky. Food, water, friendship, health, I think that’s all we need?

“If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal – that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself. The greatest gains and values are farthest from being appreciated. We easily come to doubt if they exist. We soon forget them. They are the highest reality. Perhaps the facts most astounding and most real are never communicated man to man. The true harvest of my daily life is somewhat as intangible and indescribable as the tints of morning or evening. It is a little star-dust caught, a segment of the rainbow which I have clutched”

- an excerpt from Walden, Henry Thoreau

      Hi Rosemary, Terry, Phil and Different Drummer,

      So nice to hear from you and thanks for tracking us down. Feels like a while ago since we chatted with you in Port Maurell! Indeed it has been an amazing experience and we are looking forward to more. We hope you had a great time in Samoa, we wish we’d got up there now! Hope to see you in the Pacific or NZ again someday. Until then take care and keep enjoying your sailing. Oh and thanks so much for your wedding wishes – exciting times for us.

      Love Anna and Robin
