A Sunsail beach resort could be the answer. This year, four of us decided to go on holiday together, but had a typical sailors' dilemma. Three of us wanted to do nothing but race dinghies for the whole two weeks, but the fourth wanted to do anything but. We convinced our friends that Sunsail Club Colonna in Antigua was the ideal place for a winter holiday. It's a dinghy sailor's paradise as the island lies in the tradewind belt, guaranteeing decent winds from dawn till sundown. For beginners and improvers there are free group lessons and paid-for individual tuition. For non - sailors there's mountain biking, tennis, swimming pool, a gym and spa, and two sandy beaches, and if you have children they’ll be well looked after in the popular kids’ clubs.

She Remembers A Gentle Sea And The River Seine
Last April I went to France and Belgium with my school. There was lots of water involved.
We drove in a coach to Hull. We got on a ferry there. It was quite nice. The rooms were small but clean. It was very windy and rainy that day, basically all over the country.
For lunch we had stopped at a school called Stonyhurst, which is just about the biggest anywhere, and it was raining there too.

The Symphony Of Nature - Spring Time In The Desert
In this segment (the first of several on nature), we will be addressing the fauna and flora of the desert.
In the spring it is a good time to watch for the animals of the desert, early morning and late afternoon. As I have learned over the years to observe the wildlife, being quiet and still, and letting all cares and concerns drift away in the early light, all of the sudden here comes a fox just a short distance away.
