Well I made it. Sitting here at 10PM in Ann & Dave's kitchen (that's my view out the window), typing away on my pleasingly-fast wireless broadband connection. I had my usual great time at Marcia and Rutger's and a nice dinner tonight with Margaret and Janne, after he conducted a tour of the island. I have a ton (!) of cement to wheel up tomorrow, but Janne has arranged water and electricity and the supplies are on the dock ready to go.
I have set up a webgallery of photos rather than fill up lots of posts; click here and I'll try to update it nightly.
The sunset is beautiful and I'm chilled again. Stay tuned for tomorrow's updates.
