A three year voyage.

In 2011, glenatron took me out on a fishing smack in Brightlingsea, Essex, on her first run of the season. She was called the Saxonia. Three years to the day later, and we are engaged to be married ... so I reckon it was a pretty good day out. :) Tonight we're going out for a meal to celebrate that day, and our first meal together ... and possibly the mead-fueled stupidity later where Nelson/Napoleon showed up. That was a good night.

Also three years ago today, I nearly killed everyone on board after someone unwisely gave me the helm.

She was actually sailing pretty well - the boat was heeled over because the sheet was full to the wind*.

Oy! I strongly dislike the open water, so I feel that I will never experience sailing. Good for her to get things right again! Scary.

Hah! Love the disclaimer.

Has it only been three years? It seems like way longer, don't ask me why. I need to come to England and meet everyone though! And see Pepsi again, even though she'll probably still try to bite my face off.

Pepsi trying to bite your face off is a sign of affection! ...Or so I keep telling myself. :P

Face bites are Pepsi-code for "omg you brought me food! Wait, human want on the menu?"
