Ohhhhhh philosophy in the evening!! Are you OK, Blobby or were you affected by NZ autumn?

Put it this way - 4 o'clock in the afternoon on Wednesday, Auckland Harbour - two America's cup yachts in full Emirates colour scheme go past back to the marina, a 12ft skiff is out with the number 2 rig just playing around, there are about 30 other small yachts enjoying the autumn sunshine and a good 10 - 12 kts of breeze...I think it must of finally driven me over the edge...

.........and you were stuck in an office all along??

Put it this way: 4o'clock in the afternoon on Wednesday, near Brighton. It's a basking 6ēC, the rain is pelting down, traffic to a standstill along the main roads, got to drop one girl to dance, teach a private lesson, collect girl, etc. Honestly, there are worse fates.... I do feel for you, Blobby...

And how about this as the backdrop from the site in New Plymouth...

Yep - my life is hell!

So - back on topic - could always call the radial Taranaki after the volcano in the photo...(very poor attempt at relevance!)

Sure it's not Ben Nevis??  

For all we know, you could be on night shifts as a security guard, in a depot in Croydon!

(j/k... I do believe you're exotic )

Thats evil. Just returned form traveling in Australia, and now I'm back
in England and it sucks!!!!! I want to be back out there, stood next to
the Marinie Museum where the Global Challenge Yachts are moored.
I got so excited (is that sad). And then I walked to the Opera House
and an americas cup boat sailed past!!! Heaven and the sun was
shining!! Also the house I stayed in Hobart over looked the water,
and I would be washing up watching boats race!! Ahhhhh that was
the life.

Naaaah they're fibbing. As I said, Blobby is an overweight, middle-aged guy from South London with a bit too much imagination    and Claire, hey, she's been, but she had to come back!

Our part of the world might not be paradise, but it's got decent views at times.

my secret is out - I really am a fat, bald, short accountant who works in a shabby office in East Croydon.  I commute to there every day on the train from my 1950's Wimpy home in Redhill.  I have never actually left the UK and I don't even have a passport.

And I sail a Solo...

 

 

 

Love the view by the way...

Well, at least you sail! That's one redeeming feature... A Solo, eh? You're a no-hoper

But somehow, I don't believe it...

Hey what's wrong with East Croydon? Some of us were born there.

And why the tears at sailing a Solo - the class seems to be thriving and
has some really good sailors in it - is there something I should know
before I go for a sail in one as promised to the class association?
