Simple physics - Monday May 29

About the only bit of physics I remember is “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.”  Nothing  could better explain this principle than a visit to Lutzelbourg on the Monday of a long weekend during which every hire boat on the planet had been out.   It apparently follows that on Monday, every hire boat must return to its base leaving us for the first time in many dozens of Lutzelbourg stays with no one to talk to.

Well almost no one.  There were a couple of Kiwis here as well on the only other boat within cooee of the place.  I’m not sure if they were suddenly lonely or if it was us but when they wandered over to the shade of our tree about smoko time we began a conversation which did not come close to being concluded till the sun went down, and at this time of the year that is pretty close to our bed time.

They of course had intended to sand their decks, and our own wiring circuit was still buzzing around in need of recording, but great minds thinking as they do refused to take advantage of a quiet and entirely empty port.  Surely if even the smallest of the world’s problems are solved during a day sitting in the shade it cannot be called procrastination.
