Followed by a Stint as a Part Time Red Sea Scuba Diver where I met my husband amongst the corals, sea grass and sea horses.

If you could peer far enough into the night sky, you'd see a star in any direction you looked. When would you sleep?

The sky around here is fantastic. No light pollution. Besides I do not sleep. I blog and tweet about Hadrian's Wall.
