Hammonds in August: Adventures on Board PC60 PTOLEMY

We arrived back in (sunny??) Burford on Saturday and began to very quickly check out the local hostelry, so Barbara could take on the locals at Cribbage and I could get on the outside of some proper beer. Delighted to report that all’s well in both departments…
Lovely boat guests kindly gave us a Panasonic LUMIX underwater camera so ‘nature in the deep’ will feature in this newsletter.
Take a look at this stunning Eagle Ray.

So too did a Mermaid waiting for somebody to swim down and tickle the ivories.

No need for the underwater function to capture this majestic Osprey.

We have had an excellent few months on the good ship Ptolemy with a total of 34 guests since the beginning of the year. Many from Oxford Products, so of course they paid due homage to the ‘house pennants’ on the bow of the boat. This is our token Scotsman, Eric, taking his well earned evening ‘Dark and Stormy’ whilst contemplating the meaning of life.

Sometimes the party would prefer a ‘Kalik with water’ or a little ‘lightly chilled white’…

Ship wrecks provide lots of hiding places.

Didn’t I drop my sunglasses around here somewhere?

Eventually we had to run from the Exuma Island chain back to Fort Lauderdale, put the boat to bed and head for Miami and the flight back to UK. On the way we were treated to this amazing cloud formation which then became a spectacular lightening storm.

Next day we had a rainbow to guide us across the sea to Fort Lauderdale.

Great to be back in the UK and catching up with friends and family.

Kind regards,
Alec and Barbara.
