Well…… I guess you could say I'm living up to my reputation of not writing too regularly on this blog! It was wonderfu to take August off from touring and go on a real vacation; no music and nowhere near the ocean! Uganda, central Africa in fact, to go mountain gorilla treking. Vickie and I had am absolutely wonderful time – truly a 'bucket list' trip of a lifetime. I have just returned from a repositioning cruise on the beautiful Silversea Silver Shadow. We sailed from Kodiak, Alaska, across the Bering Sea to Hakodate, Japan via Petropavlosk, Siberia. It wasn;t exactly a sun drenched cruise……..but the weather wasn't too bad. Relatively speaking for the Bering Sea that is!
I am heading out to the west coast on Friday the 4th October to join the Holland America 'Statendam' – I was due to join it on Wednesday, but the ship has been delayed by bad weather and will not make it into San Francisco where I was due to join it on Wednesday. All good fun! I am planning what has become my annual playing trip back home to London for February and a little of March; dates are filling up nicely, but I am always available for some more………..do get in touch if you would like to use me between around the 12 February and the 5 March.
Ok…….off for more practice……..does it ever end?! Don't answer that………. I know the answer……"NO"!!!!!
