I ventured off the island today.
I went north, to Suffolk, where the birds sang and the sky was blue
(everyone knows Suffolk is posher than Essex).
There is a lovely little boatyard on a pretty little river where Claudia Myatt (of RYA Go Sailing! fame) tinkers away.
She's having a bit of a do this weekend to which she has invited my stuff (and me), so if you want to see something Leafish alongside something Claudiaish alongside the pretty Deben, hop along to Waldringfield Boatyard where it's all happening.
Here is a little look into Claudia's world via Youtube, where she talks about her sailing books for children.
