Once again I have left the blog far too late and if there is such a thing as an excuse its because of sporadic mobile wifi, a penchant for remote anchorages and having too much fun. I have also had a lot of writing with a couple of columns and a fair amount of work to cover.

We are now in Rockland which is a hub of civilisation and so I have good wifi and a table to sit at as we wait for the laundry. Tracey is downloading some films to her iPad and we have a big food shop on the cards.

This was the last picture I took in Belfast which is a lovely place thanks to a great community spirit. Every Thursday they have live music sponsored by local companies and everyone turns out to listen, chinwag and dance.

This mornings paddle board bought on a double take when I saw what looked just like a Cornish Gig. I paddled over to find that it was and was soon recruited as a crew member pulling on an oar as we towed my board. It never ceases to amaze me where I come across these wonderful boats. The club is putting a male and female crew into the next world championships in the Scilly Islands.

We have anchored off Belfast and its a lovely town which is very much alive and industrious. We have met lots of interesting people and will stay here for a few days to soak the place up.

This morning we went for a five mile walk up the estuary and at times it was as if we were back home Cornwall.

From Perry Cove we launched the dinghy and bombed over to North Haven for the best Pizza we have ever eaten and to enjoy the live street music thanks to a Community Day.

On the shore side is this rather splendid house based on an old ship

My morning paddle took me right up to the head of Perry Cove where I ended up in a little ravine which had some lovely ferns growing on the rock face.

We are now in Perry Cove which as you can see from the picture is very protected and rather lovely. We have had a relaxing day ticking off lots of little jobs and generally pottering about. We like it here.
