At last I have a bit of drama to report. The black-headed gulls, shedloads of them, were dozing on Gull Island when a little coot came aboard. It bullied and chivvied half the gulls off the island, and I noticed that nobody argued with it. It then set off swimming powerfully straight towards the Captain and me peacefully eating our fish and chips in the restaurant. If it hadn't been for the strong pane of glass between us, I suspect we would have had to give up our lunch.
I wasn't going to argue with the little brute either.
It was nice to have an outing, but depressingly tiring. Terry was there and we gave him a lift back.
Still no sign of this missing Malaysian plane and its crew and passengers. I suppose it must have gone down in the deep ocean, and whatever debris there was has now sunk too or dispersed. Maybe something will wash up on a beach somewhere sometime. But, until then, do you go on hoping?
I continue wondering over the size of the universe - and how it is beyond our understanding. Which is exactly as it should be. Apparently there is one star so large that if it were standing in the place of our sun it would swallow up the earth.
As the Inspired Scriptures have always told us: “The glory of the sun is one sort, and the glory of the moon is another, and the glory of the stars is another; in fact, star differs from star in glory.” - 1 Corinthians 15:41
Star differs from star in glory The more we learn about the universe, the more we can see how true that is.
