Well we are having a grand ‘ole time enjoying the musical history lesson of the 60’s thus far – thanks for all the advice. Dippers is very fond of the Beach Boys as you would expect of one so in love with surfing safaris of her own, and I love The Rolling Stones -having done a bit of rolling myself- and am especially keen on their classic hit, ‘It’s only ocean rowin’ but I like it’. Or whatever it was. Then of course Buddy’s ‘Every day it’s a getting closer…la la la..something rollercoaster’ is quite apt as the beach nears.
A good day thus, spent rowing in and out of squalls, up and down the most regular seastate we’ve seen since the last decade (it has been a supra-long time calming down) and of course singing along in the history lessons.
I have also been dreaming up different expeditions… (Female, so I can multitask- row, sing and plan all at once, you understand). The funny thing is that one morning I’m in Sensible Careering Mode, planning a return to Oxford and Sensible Careering, then after lunch I’m listening to the Dreamy Adventurer scheming more Expotitions. As our dearly beloved Winnie the Pooh PD COR FOP etc etc has already mounted heffalump discovery missions, and is eternally planning trips to find the East and West Poles, I have had to think outside the box a bit. But I now have a set of exciting ideas and just need a big exciting sponsor as my piggy bank sounds rather hollow when shaken these days.
Meanwhile, we should tick off another degree overnight/tomorrow morning and are now happily over 2600 nauties from my mates in Perth, WA.
