I concur (and I also trace half ancestry to first fleet and the other half as new straylian) so we have more in common than that what divides us .

Re: New Zealand Arrival Levy

WOTNAME...i think every Wog in Australia should be so bloody proud for having made this country become what it is. FANBLOODYTESTIC....no USCG, almost daily mass shootings..
AND.... Im so grateful for the 540 American lives lost in the Battle of the Coral Sea, just east of Cairns in 1943...thus saving Straya from becoming South Japan
540 deaths, hundreds of ships.

U.S.A....far from perfect but truly great...imho.

Re: New Zealand Arrival Levy

Was hoping you were having a ball on the way to Eddystone Lighthouse.
Sounds like Snug.

Actually, in East Boyd Bay, awaiting the "vigorous" southerly change, and sorta expecting we may see some race boats in here later on, anchored off Whale Beach.

The plan is to pick a pleasant weather window for the trip, and let the race boats go by in peace, without having to be concerned about slow cruising boats out there in the night.

Cheers,

Ann

Yeah but they are also honorary Aussies and to use a seppo expression, "damm fine folks" and I can't wait for them to return to the fair southern isle so we can chew some fat

Oh, we like Aussies well enough. If we didn't, we wouldn't still be here after over twenty years!

I was just wondering why Brian was so insistent with his questioning of Ann. No harm done either way. In all our years of cruising, we've only encountered one chap who was anti-American enough to publicly berate us... and he was a Kiwi (or at least, it was in NZ), and I believe he might have been a wee bit drunk at the time. On the other side, we've encountered older folks who expressed gratitude for the role the Yanks played in WW2 in the South Pacific. While I wasn't personally involved, I appreciated their feelings and their candor and enjoyed some of the stories they told of those grim days.

Cheers,

Jim

Not so much bigotry as xenophobia..... the correct playing of the xenophobia card at election time has put/kept many an Australian government in power ...all the way from the 'yellow peril' to Somalia and beyond.

Not that different to a lot of other countries really
