After great demand (one reader.) Hope I finally got it right.Hyacinthe Gabrielle Roland, a French actress (and possible prostitute) who like “the Polastron,” escaped the Revolution. She married Richard Wellesley the first Marquis Wellesley, after they lived together for quite a while and had a few children. One of same, to wit Anne Wellesley, is in Queen Elizabeth s (and therefore Prince Chuck s and Duke William s and Prince George s line, via her mother the Queen Mother s mother s.Princess Frederica (or Fredericke) is in a private collection.The Duchesse de Polignac is at the Museum of Versailles and the TrianonThe self-portrait is at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, TexasHyacinthe Roland, the Queen s ancestor, is the Legion of Honor building of the San Francisco Museum of Fine ArtsFair winds and following seas 🙂

Uber

Uber is a great service for world cruisers. Not only is it cheaper than cabs but the drivers have a lot of local knowledge. When public transit doesn t go where I want or takes too much time I Uber. I was surprised to find out from my driver the other day that they don t know the destination when they accept the ride. It is not disclosed until you are in the car. So no turning down rides that they don t want. Interesting. Fair winds and following seas 🙂

Great Sandy Straight, Tin Can Bay

From Bundaberg their are two routes south: outside Fraiser Island; and through the Great Sandy Straight. Chandra and Reboot decided to go the Great Sandy Straight route. Most of the route is straightforward. There is only one section that is tricky. Passing through requires timing the tide. We set off from Bundaberg. From the onset I should have realized we were in trouble. Exiting the river was a nightmare. At one point the adverse wind and current had me averaging 1.5 knots. But heck, once out I would be able to head south under sail. Nope. The wind shifted, died, shifted again so I was motoring most of the way. Into the wind. Into the current. Finally made it to Fraiser Island Resort after a miserable passage. The next day we timed our departure to pass through the shallows. All good except for the 25 knot winds gusting to 30. We made it through the shallows and breathed a sigh of relief. The tide turned so we would get a push all the way to Tin Can Bay. Enter the southeast 20 to 2

Heiva Festival Bora Bora

Went to the Heiva festival last night. Great time. We wandered around the grounds and watched the dancers. They are amateurs but they make up for their lack of polish with large numbers and fabulous energy. The singing is amazing. Each “district” (we haven t figured out the definition of a district) sends a team. Performers range from very young to adult. We plan on going back this evening to watch more.Fair winds and following seas 🙂
