Recovery in Riverton
Monday, February 18, 2008

I'm feeling much better today, although I'm still low on energy. A 10min walk to an ice-cream shop was as much as I exerted myself and it was enough! Co-incidentally the weather has been mostly terrible while I've been sick and we wouldn't have made much progress anyway, but tomorrow the winds are dying down ( although the swell will still be about 5 metres from the SW!), Wed and Thursday could be light winds with reducing swell so it's a very good opportunity. However, it's already Monday night and I'm not sure if I'm up to getting back to Port Craig tomorrow and paddling the next day. I'm off to bed now and we'll decide in the morning. Thank you so much to Tim, Jacqui, Sarah and Ruby for looking after us so well. We also had Peter, Belinda and Dana for dinner tonight which was great. more fantastic food! Thanks everyone for all the comments on the blog.

I've uploaded our GPS routes from onto day 8 - day 14 if you want to see where we paddled. you can click on the image, switch from a map to a sat photo, zoom in etc. For some reason which I'm not sure yet the times were were on the water are recorded as too long on most days so our average speed etc is wrong a lot of the time. I'm not sure yet why that is. If we don't leave tomorrow and I get time then I'll upload the maps for the other days tomorrow.

Hi Justine, I had a jump on the chair opening your blog to see a picture of you into the hospital!
I'm happy to read that my heroine is better now.
Greetings from Sicily.

Yo también me asusté cuando leí lo de la evacuación al hospital en helicóptero.

Me he encariñado de esta mujer y sus aventuras.

Espero que se recupere pronto.

Hi Justine,

greetings from NYC!

It is a huge relief to hear you are feeling better. It sounds you went through some terrible hours and days at the old schoolhouse. All the Best to you and Barry for the remainder of the trip!
