St Helena First Views

 So after 5 days at sea, and no sight of any ship, this is it.  A pile of rock whose vague shape can just be made out, covered in cloud.

The weather changes more than once in the short time we approach.  Whether you are seeing the island for the first time, are returning after a long time or only a matter of days, the sight of the island seems equally fascinating.                                                 


                                                                                                                                                                         And soon what had looked like an uninhabited rock betrays familiar signs of life.
