Amazing Adventure is Over

Shane called this morning to say the amazing sailing adventure is over. They are in port at Gibraltor in the Mediterrania. Walid is leaving the Gryphon in the hands of a boat broker in a British run marina. He said boats such as the Gryphon are very popular in London, and Walid thinks he'll do well there. Shane is packed. They'll clean the boat today. They will spend a night or two on the Gryphon, then Walid and Shane will part company. Shane will drive to Malaga, Spain and take a flight to London, then head for Boston. He should be there by 7 p.m. Monday. Walid will fly to Rome, and then New York. (Hope I have all my facts correct!)

Well done, young men, well done! I, for one, will be glad when they are back on American soil! But it was fun living vicariously through them since November 9.

Just like out of a perfect movie!
It looks like some $$$ could be made for the right to this story.

I am first in line for the DVD.

Congratulations, and safe returns!

(the Moroccan land adventure would make a great opportunity for an alternate ending for the DVD...)

Bruce hit the nail right on the head about this adventure for a movie. I am glad it had a good ending. I also would like to have a DVD of it. Maybe one signed by the two stars. Judy, maybe you can get a good nights sleep now. Vernon
