Wandering around the harbour in Torekov on my day off, I had to take a photo of this Volvo Penta sign. The same white logo on a bright blue background witnessed a life-changing moment in my life 30 years ago. November 1982, the tourist season had finished and we were winterising a fleet of Swedish Maxi yachts in Bodrum marina. I was dismantling winches, up to my elbows in grease and wearing a fetching blue boiler suit supplied by Volvo, (with their logo boldly printed on the front and back), when our local agent walked by with a stunningly attractive, very tall stranger. Serendipity, fate, kismet; call it what you will but after 28 years of marriage, 26 years of which we have worked as well as lived together, I hope this still good-looking chap doesn't rue the day he went for a wander in the marina but is enjoying his 5 weeks of freedom.
