Girvan harbour seems to be a stopping off place for life boats in transit- there are often visiting lifeboats moored alongside the Girvan vessel. I wonder if the crews get together and share stories of the shouts they've been on.
It's always good to find folks with whom you share a passion, folk who are fired up by the kinds of things that get you going. Good to have an opportunity to share stories.
There's a lot of that going on just now at Gartmore House where I'm involved in a ministry training event. Lots of stimulating discussion and conversation - always the best bit of any conference.
