Any Excuse to Sail
We had an excuse to go sailing last week, and it was a good one - our friend Zoya's visit.
Without her visit, we would have missed this morning light in Barnes Bay.
We would have missed this rainbow in the D'Entrecasteaux Channel...
...and these wallabies on Simpsons Pt.
Our time away from town was a great reminder of how remarkable any regular run of days can be if you break away from the routine and go have a look at the world.
And, lucky us, our routine here in Hobart is pretty easy to break away from. And we've been able to spend a lot of time during the last five years just looking at the world.
Finally, though we have some great Hobartian friends whom we have been able to see a lot of during our two stays here, much of our sailing life has been characterized by powerful, but ephemeral, friendships. So it was great to be visited by someone we've known, jeez, for ten years or more.
