I'd be better off counting on getting my old watch back for Christmas. As you know, it's anywhere from 6-12 feet under your anchorage on Skull Creek. So how were the winds on the way down? Looked like it would've been favorable at the beginning, and not so favorable towrad the end. Glad to hear you made it safely.

Hey !! This is John Howard's Australia I'm living in. TV did not get to Oz until 1956 remember.

Ask me again on Monday when we've maybe moved forward in time a few years.

That porpoise was also a female on youtube. Just like the one on the TV series was a female named Mitzi. I grew up swimming with Mitzi before she became a star.

May the winds blow true,
And the skies stay blue.
