It’s not every day you receive a postcard from Pitcairn Island, the smallest British Overseas Territory. 9000 miles from London and one of the world’s most isolated communities, it is home to just 47 people, descendants of the Bounty mutineers and their Polynesian companions. It’s reached only via a supply ship which arrives there once every three months. My postcard came from Rhiannon Adams, a friend of a friend, who has just returned from a 3 month visit to the island on a mission to photograph and document island life. I contributed to her Kickstarter campaign and in return, she wrote to me from the island! You can read about her adventures on her blog.

On Wednesday night we went for an evening cruise out to Ely, hoping to get a spot somewhere central for the Aquafest on Sunday, where the Ouse Washes LP has a stand. We set of from Waterbeach as soon as James returned from work, and made our way out of town. It was a beautiful evening to be boating, after a very hot day it was cooler on the river.
Ely is often extremely busy, especially in the summer at weekends and so with the Aquafest on Sunday we’d been a bit worried that there would be nowhere to stop. However, we were pleased to find a Willow-shaped space just down from the Cutter!
