“POOR JOHN”

WE HAVE AN EMERGENCY An abscess has formed and burst on Johns back upper tooth ..he’s not a happy bear !!

On leaving the ferry I found a harbour on my maps.me just 5 minutes away for the terminal ..and hoped there would be a parking spot ..In Sicily no one bats an eyelid if a camping car is parked up ..Poor J is in pain and doing a lot for growling ..Not my fault ..I said he should have had it out as it was playing up pre-adventure …Keep stum Susan ..Advise not appreciated.

Yes a parking place in between two large fishing boats layed up on the quay is found( 38.152541 13.375875 ) J throws more paracetamol down his throat and heads for bed .. It’s thundering ..and pouring ..In Hetty I sleep the sleep of the dead but J says he heard the fishing boats set out ..I heard nothing ..

Red marks the sleepy spot but not the weather !!! Cold damps and grey ..

 I have found us a dentist just 1 km away but now we have to get out of this parking / sleepy spot and the market has set up in the very narrow street which was our exit ..more very narrow wing mirror bending streets ..as luck would have it the road works are up and running and just leaving us a 3m bit of road to squeeze through …Its ok J is a superb driver ..its me who panics ..Do you think if I breath in hard it makes a difference ? NO ! But I do …Massive intakes of breath ..and breath ..We manage again not to hit Hettys roof on an over hanging balcony , Scrape her wing mirrors on some parked vehicle ..or be reversed into by a market shopper .

We are now parked up on a mainland road ..Can’t see any “We will tow you away if you park here ” sign

Google is our best friend at the moment + our handy not very strong little Mifi ..in a biggish place works reasonably well …The best signal so far was miles from any civilisation up in the forest above Frejus ..My thoughts on that are there must be very rich people living in the area .

Me and Him and Hetty like adventures ..We spend most of our summers sailing Now a little elderly for big boat racing and have turned to Radio Controlled Yachting competing nationally and even internationally ..I have travelled to many countries in my other life BJ (before John)lots of Indian backpacking trips. Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.
