I live in fear of becoming boring and bored. But joy of joy it’s that time of year again and we are off on an adventure. This one is a little fancier than previous ones but I think it will possibly be more challenging. We the Knoxes, plus one other (Sam’s girl friend India) are going to travel from Windsor to Pittwater on a solar powered houseboat. Over 150km on the suns rays. Hopefully.
We do have a back-up generator but I am determined to make this a carbon free, solar power, pick your own mushrooms kind of journey. But we will be doing it tough. The boat only has 2 armchairs.
We set off on Saturday 2oth December and we’ll look forward to getting to know you all en route. But this is a serious adventure. We seriously want to raise awareness for St Edmunds School and fingers crossed, raise money so that the staff can continue to do great work with the new year 7s that will be arriving in January. Our son Leo is in year 12 and will leave St Edmunds tomorrow. We want to say goodbye and thank you so very much for looking after all of us over the last 5 years.
