The trip to Lundy for the ceremony which is planned to include "A Lundy Anthem" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8YJ7qRUEdY begins tomorrow. Even here in the port town of Ilfracombe internet access is very hard, and on the Island there is virtually none. And in the only pub, phones and tablets are banned.

So for the first time I have gone on vacation on chess.com. Somehow I managed to play twenty moves before anyone replied, and then set the vacation flag.

One game is in a no vacation tournament. If my opponent is kind enough to wait till the third day before moving . I will be back on the mainland before timing out.

Curiously, the mobile apps do not allow moves in the no-vacation tournaments, so a browser window must be opened. It is unlikely this will work on that windswept isle, but I may check it out.

See y'all a week from now. The boat leaves in the morning!
