Time for a continental shift???

Typing this on a Fokker50 jet flying from Perth to Geraldton, i’m spoilt by uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean, clear blue water that lets you see the sea bed underneath, boats heading to Rottnest for the long weekend, and in the distance a constant blue where the water and sky is no longer distinguishable.  479 more words

Step by step via burpees... not fun... but...
