Return to Aus

YES!  Clipper ship City of Adelaide  birthday and homecoming celebrations coming up this Saturday 17 May at Port Adelaide, South Australia and I’m going to be there!  Loads of fun and entertainment and … I’ve been asked to give a talk to be held in the Speakers’ Tent about the diary I kept on her final voyage on board heavy-lift cargo ship MV Palanpur from Rotterdam on 26 November 2013  to Adelaide on 3 February 2014!  Flying out to Adelaide on 14th May, arriving 15th night.  This will be the event that will bring my journey with clipper ship City of Adelaide to a close as far as my book is concerned.  Back at the beginning of June when sparks will fly from my keyboard.
