Oh the things I would do if I worked less and had kids I could borrow for a day. Last week (aka, before I caught a nasty cold) I was wandering around the harbour and saw a magnificent pirate-y ship, and a rather imposing naval vessel.
This is a replica of the HMB Endeavour.
It made me wish I could bring my friend's kids along as an excuse to climb all over the ship, look through portholes, and generally enjoy a piece of history without the awkwardness of being a lone adult on a ship's tour.It was such a great day for it, too - look at those clouds.
So Christie... how 'bout it? Want to hop on a plane with your kids for a couple days in Oz?
