Voyage of Discovery

[ Kiwozi :
I escaped – yes Kiwozi abandoned his desk and put to sea. Down the Burnet River from Bundaberg andFraser Is 005 out on the high seas to explore the Wide Bay & Fraser Is for a week aboard Screensaver.

He discovered that “Wide Bay” is so wide that one can almost be totally out of sight of land – scary? . . . no not really because he also discovered many parts are so shallow that you can almost walk ashore anyway.  If one declares they are building a Bridge it is generally expected that it will span from Point A to Point B – if one declares they are building a Pier it is generally expected it will be out into the water right? – well in order to reach the water they had to make Urangan Pier 868M long – Kiwozi rests his case.

As they did a pub crawl around three different bars at Kingfisher Bay Resort Kiwozi discovered that the samFraser Is 024e beer can taste quite different depending on the surrounding environment. Then back on board again, as the sun dipped under the Yardarm, it tastes different yet again (the fact that he didn’t have to pay A$288 night for his room probably helped).

On the far reaching white sands away from the tourists, he discovered Dingo’s retreating into the bush and aborigines emerging  from it as soon as White Man steps ashore.  He climbed atop a sand dune where no man hath trod before, only to discover more sand dunes (and his calf muscles).  He could see his floating hotel room anchored at least 868M offshore.

As they sailed around he saw Turtles, Stingrays, Sea Snakes, Jellyfish, Crabs, all on their own little voyages to who knows where.  Whales were out of season so they settled for the Dolphins instead.  They returned to Hervey Bay a week later, gently deepening the Marina with their keel as they berthed.  A farewell meal ashore where restaurant staff were very perceptive and knew we were from a yacht (maybe the waterproof gear and bare feet gave us away) . . and then having recharged his batteries and Fraser Is 025aenhanced his tan, it was back to the Office Desk.  ]

I am more fortunate than 500 million people in the world - I've never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation. I am richer than 75% of this world - I have food in my refrigerator, clothes on my back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep. I am among the top 8% of the world's wealthy - I have a little money in my wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace .
