Coming Home?

Today Rob and I returned from our 2-week sailing trip. We had been as far as Hamelin Bay, just north of Cape Leeuwin. This might not seem far by car, but it takes a long time to sail there, AND to brave the Southern Ocean. It was very kind to us, and we had a good motor sail down to Hamelin Bay from Busselton.  As this was the farthest south we have yet sailed we were very focussed, and it seemed further away than it really was. Or perhaps home seemed further away from where we were than it really was. Whatever the reason, as we pulled up in our drive this afternoon, having cleaned and packed up Dusky Dolphin in her pen, we felt that we had travelled much further than we actually had, and for much longer than we actually had.

Perhaps now we are at home with the sea…
