Our home is girt by sea… except none of us know what girt is. (Refers to us being an island).
After a long US trip, (SF, Florida up to NYC — via some fun places and ballgames) I was back on Australian sands. And the solitude and swells of the South Coast, New South Wales. This fishing town is famed for its drop in the continental shelf, about 27 nautical miles out. Good for marlin fishing (if you’re ready to deprive one fish from its life mate. Oops, I went out one day on charter, but we didn’t catch anything, and only found out about their monogamy afterwards). Zane Grey was here. I was here. George Bass Surfboat Marathon rowers were here.
