New love

Look at this ship, look at this lovely ship! I spent yesterday attacking her with a hair dryer. Well, actually a heat gun, but it works like a hair dryer, with low and high settings. If you turn it too high, bits of the hull start to smoulder; too low and you’ll never dry the timber where the iron keel meets the wood, and if you paint over it like that it’ll rot. So. Hair dryer. I’m not going to tell you all about Duyfken now, because I’m hoping this is the start of a beautiful friendship. But check her out here – she’s really special.

About andreabaldwin

I'm a freelance writer, publishing travel articles and features. I also write short fiction and novels for adults, young adults and children. I've been a registered psychologist for 20 years, and my past careers have included clinical psychology, organisational psychology, and management. I'm interested in the interactions between people and places, particularly how the natural environment supports the health of individuals and communities, and the importance of caring for our environment. I'm also interested in the ways people use writing to better understand their own thoughts and feelings, and to connect with others.
