Hello from Cornwall

Hello all

I am a retiree living on a catamaran, currently in Cornwall, but usually in France in the summer. I own bronze alto and tenor bauhaus saxes. I only began in February 2009 and I play very badly. (Not the saxes' fault) However, playing enriches my life and I usually feel better for having practiced. One day I aspire to play well enough to stop people wincing when in earshot!

Warning, don't play whilst on the high seas, you may bite off more than you can chew!:D

Welcome to the cafe, although I don't like you already...nothing to do with your lifestyle of course!!! >:) ;}

Welcome. I'm envious. Did most of my sailing round the Orwell and N. Essex coast years ago. Always found it the complete distraction to the stresses of life, work and the like.

Hello and welcome from another newbie - they seem to be a friendly bunch here.

Very jealous of the life on the open wave! :shocked:

You're always welcome to moor off Swansea Bay - I'll teach you a few moves, and show you my curved soprano BW!

Until then, welcome to Y Sacsaffon Caffi!
Kind regards

Hi Everyone

Many thanks to you all for the warm welcome.

In reply to Phil - The boat stayed in Redon all winter and the 2009 cruise included the river Vilaine, Houat, Hoedic, Belle Isle, the Morbihan, Concarneau, Benodet, the Odet to Quimper, Loctudy, The Isles de Glennan, Audierne and L'Aberwach and now I'm back in wet Cornwall.

For anyone interested, the old git possibly, the boat is an Apache 41 ketch built in the early 1970s and virtually rebuilt between 1995 and 97. I bought her in late 2005. I may have posted a couple of photos in my public profile, if I followed the instructions.

Thanks again for the hellos.

Chris

Hi Chris, you are just making us all so envious, i am a real Francophile so envy in a nice way you way of life. I was lucky enough to have lived six years in Paris hence my holidays every year in Brittany. Nice boat, i did a bit of sailing in Trinite sur mer but that was many moons ago. I actually lived out of the Uk for over 24 years in various countries, came back three years ago and loving it. Cornwall is so nice even when it's wet. Enough of my reminiscing, all the best Phil. :w00t:
