Land at last!

I have arrived! After 38 days, 11 hours and 7 minutes of being at the mercy of the sea, I can once again feel land beneath my feet. Oh and how sweet it is! I am here in Barbados resting my exhausted body and enjoying once again all those little things I sorely missed in the wilderness, like showers, beds and fresh food! I still feel somewhat shell shocked after this utterly gruelling challenge but want to take the opportunity to thank those people who have supported me throughout this journey, your kind messages have given me strength to successfully row the Atlantic Ocean . I am going to take a little time to recover lost sleep and to learn to walk properly again! But soon I will write a fuller account of the crossing with its few highs and many lows, and share photos and videos. So watch this space. It's so good to be back!
