Meant to be.
We are starting to think that the former Prime Minister of Australia who famously stated that life wasn’t meant to be easy was on to something.
Take today for instance. Travelling thirty-three kilometres up the river at an overall average speed of four point six meant more than seven hours at the helm with only thirteen breaks while we negotiated locks. That’s a lock every half hour with seven hours of watching the charts, keeping an eye on river perils, trying to keep weed off the propellor, eating on the run with barely time to snap a photograph under skies so boringly blue one wondered why one bothered.
Surely no one could describe today as easy. This therefore, must be how life was meant to be.
