    Would you go on a cruise now?

    When the Arcadia docked in Tilbury, I noticed several Americans? That were sat around in the deckchairs. Apparently, they were permanent guests...Just sailing around, year after year. Cheers, Bobj.

    Would you go on a cruise now?

    Did a cruise on the Arcadia from Perth to Tilbury via the sewage canal but the Egyptians closed the canal as we got to Colombo. Spent a day there, then we had to go to Capetown, 18 hours in Gage Roads, waiting to berth. The skipper ordered ferries to take us ashore.Beaut city, Capetown. On to the Canary Islands for a day and finally docking inTilbury 11 days late. But what a trip! Cheers, Bobj.

    Would you go on a cruise now?

    Never. I know the huge tides of the west Kimberlies, having walked a few times around bottoms of some State Ships tied up at the old Broome jetty and walked out to the old flying boats strafed by jap fighter bombers in WWII. I also have cds of fishing Montgomery. Cheers, Bobj.

    Moving to Perth with my dog

    Along the Balladonia-Cocklebiddy section the red sand dunes were chockers with bunnies, squillions of 'em. That was in 1963, the old road, History lesson, It also had the longest straight section in Australia, some 147km, over the red dunes, so, in fact it really wasn't straight, as it had over 40 vertical curves. Naughty corner, Bobj. Cheers, Bobj.

    Moving to Perth with my dog

    When I left WA for the last time, the boss of the Kalgoorlie Division, a pommy engineer, was ordered, after completion of the bitumen to the border, to leave almost all the road gear, graders, 'dozers, rollers, huts etc. at the border in order to get the South Australian Govt. to feel embarrassed that their end was still dirt. Apparently, the SA Govt. got a Federal grant to complete the Eyre Hwy. leaving egg on the WA govt faces. I must not go off topic I must not ... Cheers, Bobj.

    Odd, all 6 trips have been alone, except for mum and the bub when it was dirt from Balladonia to Yalata,some 200 miles into South Australia. Just had a squiz at the map of the Eyre Hwy and I see it has been moved! It is closer to the Great Australian Bight, Might have a think about a trip over there again... Cheers, Bobj.
