Things that Might go Wrong
- Banjo might drown
- I might drown
- I might crash into another boat or cause a huge boating disaster
- It might be boring
- It might be freezing
- I might DIE!
Why did I decide to spend a month on a boat on the River Murray in late winter? I pondered this the other day when I went for a walk with Banjo and my 9 year old friend Pipo. We scampered along the River Torrens in St. Peters and inevitably we got wet – who needs bridges when you have stepping stones?
Pipo: ” This is more like a journey than a walk.”
Me: ” Whats the difference between a journey and a walk?”
Pipo: ” A journey is dangerous.”
Late Winter means early Spring right?
- It might be amazing
- It might be astonishingly beautiful
- Banjo wasn’t born to live in a back yard
- I wasn’t born to live in a suburb
Ever been on a boat on the River Murray? It gets under your skin.
