Lovely, watery land!

I have misgivings, though, about the assumptions in the interpretation of the rune message.

Yes! For starters, "the recipient" rather than assuming that Gyda would naturally:
a) have a husband, and
b) be writing to her husband

Presumably there's no language-marker which shows the recipient to be certainly male? (Oh, museums! Havens for unexamined assumptions!)
