There are good and bad times, but our mood changes more often than our fortune.


Here are Henry and Jen up on the bridge of a bloody great oil tanker.

Perhaps some helpful commenter could tell us the precise name of the ship in question.

Would it be the ship your father sails in????

From the lack of snorkel gear, I'm guessing it's not the Lake Illawarra.

I will have to track down some pertinent facts for your blog.
I will get back to you.
And yes, Sue is right . It is indeed the Hugli Spirit. The vessel your father works on.

And for Smudgeon. We did actually sail over the Lake Illawarra when we sailed under the Tasman Bridge on our way to Selfs Point. The oil wharf.
