starry starry night

i cannot wait to get south and go sailing! this winter wonderland stuff has worn thin. today as i was packing i came across our planisphere. a planisphere is a star chart. there’s 2 plastic wheels that you set with the date and the time then you hold it up so that the centre is on the north star. all the heavens and bright lights are mapped out for you. it’s one of my favourite night time things to lie on the cabin top and locate stars. tiny pinpricks of light. yes, life without television.
