A good traveller has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.

Dish on South Arm. Seen from Sandy Bay [with zoom]. August 2011.

SETI alive and well in Tasmania? Perhaps...

Today's Sunday Top Five is a straightforward one: My Top Five English Monarch Throughout History That I would Like To Invite Around To Tea!

  • Edmund the Magnificent

  • Æthelred the Unready

  • William the Bastard, a.k.a. William the Conqueror

  • Richard III

  • Charles I

Just to throw the cat amongst the pigeons, I'd also invite Lords Protector Oliver Cromwell along, spike his drink, and watch the feathers fly!

Do you think I could have my breakfast out of that dish?
SETI, Yeti, Betty. Is this some polit speak?
We are picking up a pilot at 1500 (3pm), this arfternoon and going to anchor in Moreton Bay until 1700 (5pm) tomorrow, when we go to our berth to load.
Petroleum products to North and far North Queensland. Petrol, Diesel, Jet fuel.
Our carbon footprint is huge!

Kris, I think you did know that I will comment on that quote. It is so true. But it is better without "good".
We try to do it this way. That's the reason why we are so slow and need so much time to get home;)

Roddy, SETI = Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence.

Carola, travel is about the journey, not the destination. Of that, you already know much!

Why don't we concentrate on finding intelligent life on earth first?
