St Anna is on a distinguished road
I have a teenager nearby. He sees well, still fetches things when needed and can sort out computer stuff. Only needs feeding 8 times a day. (Then again, so do I!)

On a boat anything stronger than 7 x magnification without stabilising is tricky because the shake makes them difficult to use.

The 15x50 stabilised binos are awesome. No other way to describe them. They bring the horizon to your toerail. But at around NZ$4k they had better be, right?

Just for the record, what we do with cards is report them stolen a month after receiving new ones. That way they get replaced and we get to keep the cancelled cards that visibly are perfectly valid and current (expiry date wise).

A bunch of these along with a few dollars are left in a sacrificial wallet in the chart table. Once found, the thief rarely goes searching.
