Up at dawn – Robin and Xavier

fastasleep
In this heat, where you sleep on the boat is a bit of a movable feast. Hugo seems to be the only person bendy enough to be able to get through the night happily sleeping in the hammock hanging from the boom. I can’t bear to have anyone too close to me and Xavier is enjoying the novelty of sleeping with a different person each night. I woke up early this morning and this was such a sweet view through the cabin door, I had to draw them.

Just delightful.
It is lovely when a little kid curls up next to you like this. Your own kids, your grandkids, foster kids. They are warm and trusting.
