Cast Away on a Whaleboat
Sheesh! Last time I wrote you I was waxing poetic on Tasmanian country roads. Just to show what wonderful things they lead to, the gravel road I followed lead me to a 30-foot open whaleboat, an overnight stranding that amounted to a modern day cast-away status – and a trophy at Australia’s southernmost regatta. All in the same boat….
I know. It’s a lot to digest. But first some clothes washing is in order. Stay tuned…
Worry Wart Factoid: Fear not, I’m fine. After the whaleboat adventure, I loaded up my trusty bike and resumed my journey toward Hobart. There, on Friday, April 28, I depart for North Carolina.
Map note: the map below shows where the Capricornia made shore in her unexpected Bruny Island landfall.
That Bernie – he can’t stay away from gaff-rigged boats.
