In memory of my beautiful Man. Richard Kenna. 18/07/65 – 03/08/14
How did I get to here……
A few years ago Richard and I watched a documentary series about a journalist who joined a restored Tall ship and sailed around the world for 6 months.
That ship was the Picton Castle. We dreamt that one day we may be able to have that adventure ourselves together.
Well here I am now living the dream for the two of us. My adventure starts on 1st January 2016…..
My name is Judi and I am learning to be a Me or I. Not easy to do after spending 28 years with Richard living as an Us and We.
Before Richard passed away he made me promise to live life and do all the things that I dreamed of doing.
I reach a landmark birthday in September and am trying to fulfil my bucket list – Not that I actually have one but we all have things that we want to do and see.
So far I have been to New York at Christmas, seen the Rockefeller Centre Christmas tree, walked up Fifth Avenue and bought earrings in Tiffanies.
I have been to Las Vegas, watched the gamblers, seen the lights and the razzmatazz, I even saw Elvis 4 times. I’m sure The midget Elvis wearing a kilt was the real one….
I have looked over the Grand canyon WOW.
I have been to West end shows with my Nephew and Niece. Silver linings in my life.
Now I am joining the Picton Castle on 1st January at La Gomera Island (Tenerife) to live the life of a sailor (or pirate) for 3 1/2 months.
Sailing to Senegal, Cape Verde Islands, all round the Caribbean and finally ending up at the ships home town of Lunenburg. Nova Scotia in mid April.
I hope to tell you all about my adventures, but will only be able to update this site when on land and can find a WIFI connection.

I finish my journey in Toronto where I will meet up with my Mum and visit Niagra Falls.
A very big adventure. I hope you enjoy the ride. X
