Home is the sailor, home from the sea

Have just returned to "Riverbend" after a beautiful day on the water. There's no place like home and as evidenced by the tee-shirt, Nelligen is right up there with every other great metropolis.

The sun is over the yardarm ...

... and it's time to test the old "In vino veritas" adage. It's been a peaceful and quiet day at "Riverbend": I engaged in some bibliotherapy, listened to the radio, fed the dogs ... in fact, there's been such a marvellous amount of nothing to do that the day went by real quickly!

The 2000 Shiraz "Queen Adelaide" is a sufficiently mellow drop to consider the ills of the world by as I watch the timeless ebbs and tides of the river. Let's drink to that!
