Topics of conversation:
We're missing DK, who is a little under the weather with 'a chest', and The Pirate was late so we did think it may just be 3 of us today. The Pirate has admitted that if we tell him our meet time is 30 minutes earlier he might be there in time. I think I'll just ask The Pirate's Wife to change the kitchen clock.
We were able to shake of the night and The Pirate referred to the dark gloom of sadness rising like a scum and floating away and we briefly toyed with it being more like silt and sinking to the bottom, but in the words of John Irving 'Sorrow floats'. This is the first occasion the sun had risen as we went in for ages and by 7.45am we had a clear sky and swam in golden light. It was a very lifting experience. 

I'd had a text from the dog hunt co-ordinator on my way to the beach to tell me there was an article in the local paper about Maisie being reunited with her owner and I've just heard that she's also in the Daily Mail!
