Visit to Deo Volente

Lynn and I had a real blessing today when we motored up river in Jireh, our Drascombe Lugger to visit some friends on board their Yacht 'Deo Volente'. Ian Crossley and I have been in email contact for about a year, praying for his son Nathan, who is currently under training in the Royal Marines Band Service. Having served for 33 years in the Band I can give a certain empathy as to what a young Christian man is going through in the Royal Marines. Ian is a keen sailor and was cruising with his friends Paul and Helen on board their beautiful Camper and Nicholson yacht. Having sailed in to the River Dart yesterday they invited us on board for a coffee and chat. It was a real blessing to be able to share fellowship and to share how God is working in each of our lives. Paul and Helen have similar experiences to Lynn and I on sailing matters and it was a privilege to be able to share some of these.

New Blog - L-plates fitted!

With the future demise of our web site http://www.watsonatsea.co.uk/, I have created this blog to keep the 'picture' of current activities in the Watson saga up to date. Having spent some time sailing our 38 catamaran 'Pumpkin in South East Asia, we have now sold her and settled down in Dartmouth to what is becoming a busy life of work at the local Baptist church, writing music and working on the River Dart for the DHNA - driving boats around the river! Also, we are busy with our two youngest girls, Julia and Lydia, who have continued to take their eduction at home since our return from the tropics. Furthermore, our eldest daughter Hannah gets married in September, and we continue to enjoy our contacts with our very oldest - Daniel.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the site.
