Little Bear and Keswick were three happy little bears who lived
with Christine and Keith in a little house near Southampton England.
The bears were used to having lots of adventures and had been everywhere
with their original owners, Emily, Robert and Charlotte and were
now looking forward to lots more.
One day Christine and Keith decided to go
on a big sailing adventure in their boat and asked whether we
would like to come to. We sent word to Keswick who was at the
time living in Knightsbridge and helping Robert with his studies.
A bear conference was called for. "Where
will we go?" asked Little Bear. "Will we see dolphins
and whales?" asked Jerra-Mary."Sharks and storms more
like!" said Keswick. But the adventurous three decided that
it would be good fun to go anyway.
Preparations and packing started in earnest
and the three practice their knots and studied the atlas closely,
deciding what clothes and things to take.
The day of departure dawned. "Where's
the sunshine that we were so looking forward to?" asked Little
The three bears now settled down to a short
trip along the South Coast of England getting prepared for their
first sailing trip to foreign lands.
