This morning we were discussing the violent storm in the Mediterranean (Acts:27) which lasted 14 days and ended in St Paul’s shipwreck. This lead to revisiting my own journey through this seemingly idyllic stretch of water. (‘ice creams’ page 147)and progressed  to sailing across Bass straight. On Doug’s first trip we had a fairly rough passage, but not the worst I’d experienced.  Midshipman Doug was anxiously up and down all night checking what was going on. He was quite forgetting that the Captain and Crew had been sailing this route ever since the Ferry was commissioned.  On returning to the mainland two weeks later he was much more relaxed and really enjoyed the trip. Its a very human trait of course, stressing and worrying about things which are totally out of our control, instead of relaxing and enjoying the journey.
