This blog post is dedicated to a good friend of the Blonde’s. She isn’t Blonde but we forgave her that fact ages ago because she is great fun, doesn’t mind looking silly and has given a lot of time to volunteering with young people.

Sadly (for us and for the young people of Torbay) but happily for her Captain Claire (she isn’t a captain but we are all hoping she will be very soon) has headed off to another seaside and starts her new job today. It is a very exciting job and one that we can all see will be right up her street (or on her tack). I can’t tell you too much about Captain Claire’s new job except to say that it involves lots of craft, some fabulous views and telling blokes what to do. We Blondes (plus one) are very much looking forward to visiting her and exploring her new place.

We had a bunkhouse party for Captain Claire a couple of weekends ago. ‘Four girls in a bunkhouse’ should really be the title of a novel, as far as I know it isn’t, but it was a recipe for a fabulous evening. We had:

Boats – all named and floated

A pub called simply ‘The Plume’ and some rather nice whisky

A bunkhouse room with a spare bunk for balloons

Some great food

Pressies from Devonshire

A quiz to find out who was the best sailor (luckily for Captain Claire she was, and no, Blonde One, Pingu was not a famous sailor)

An entertaining time creating ‘flatlay’ photographs from whatever we had with us

An even more entertaining time when we got confused about the photos and tried to ‘flatlay’ ourselves

Not much sleep!

So good luck and ahoy there Captain Claire. We will be down to visit you soon. Batten down your hatches, shiver your timbers, set yourself full to the gunwales and whatever you do… don’t be a DUFFER!
