January 11, 2010 - Gloucester Courthouse VA, United States
We spent the last couple of weeks on Sea Gal enjoying the Chesapeake autumn, and looking forward to central heating when we found a house to live in.
We enjoyed the last few sunsets and took some friends from the boatyard for a sail, to remind them of what it was, or show them something new.
Sea Gal finally got hauled out for the winter into Shroeders Yard and tucked up with anti-freeze and zip-lock bags.
Before we left there was a party, for some it was the end of the summer season, for others the start of the winter migration to the Caribbean, for the rest an excuse to drink beer and eat oysters.
Lucy and Rick from 'Flying Cloud' are heading to the southern Caribbean
We had time for a quick visit to the UK. Barney caught up with young niece and nephew Josie and Rory. Both getting bigger by the minute.
We were also lucky enough to be in the country for Paul and Marys wedding in Godstone. It was great to catch up with lots of old school friends, and very nice of them to all come to one place to save us all that travelling.
In December 2009 Diane and Barney started a new job in a luxury ski chalet in Veysonnaz, Switzerland
Barney had a new ride to drive in his job at Hidden Dragon.
An old friend, Lindsay, came to work at the Hidden Dragon chalet as the house keeper.
Jon the chef picks out a new handbag.
We met Carol Sneddon who was the therapist it the chalet
After half the winter season we moved back to Klosters and Davos. Stayed with an old friend Teresa and soon started work in the Chalet Tivoli.
In Davos we enjoyed the skiing and the stuff that comes after( and before and during )
In Davos the scenery was beautiful and the valleys peaceful.
Sometimes the job included some strange duties, such as igloo building.
