31st May – Lundy Island
June 1, 2012
Today I be off on the ole Oldenberg to Lundy. It be ‘ere that me eldest son James did get killed collecting seagulls’ eggs back in 1867.
It be a good trip and the air sea rescue people did come along with their helicopter. Back in my day it be me and the Grace Darlin’ that did do any rescuing.
Demmned great bird that there helicopter be. I did think it ‘ud take the mast off the Oldenberg.
With Janet, Pam and Brian, I did race round Lundy just as the fog closed in.
