Legends from our own lunchtimes

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Tonight we are moored a few kilometres from where in 200AD more than 15,000 people lived in the Roman Town of Nasium and as always when faced with the reality of a history that dates to even before Giligan's Island was on television, we are feeling just a little introspective and incredulous about the minuteness of the time we will spend on this planet and indeed with the minuteness of the recorded history of the country of our birth.

We are also reminded of the minuteness of our little ship as we lie beside a wall, neatly hemmed in by "Anthonia" and "Melinda", bless them, the only two other craft we have seen all day on twenty kilometres of waterway.  It's a well known fact that huddling together would keep us all warm for the night.
