What it is all about...


"The highest treason, the meanest treason, is to deny the holiness of this little blue planet on which we journey through the cold void of space."  Edward Abbey




I live on a portion of the planet that contains a lot more brown and green than blue.  But our planet's surface is about 71% water-covered, and most of that water is in our oceans.  Note my voyage begins at the place that was so inspiring to Edward Abbey, Arches National Park (Desert Solitaire: a season in the wilderness).  But even Abbey recognized that we live on a "little blue planet."

Next week I begin a 5 month journey that has me exploring some parts of "waterworld," but even then I will spend most of my time on terra firma.  I should be within a few kilometers of the sea at all times, if not in it or under it.  This blog will document my Blue Planet Journey.




I'll start in Hawaii, then head off to Australia.  Before I return, I'll visit Australia on multiple occasions, as well as New Zealand, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Bora Bora, Tahiti, and more.  In Hawaii, I'll visit Kauai, Maui, Oahu, and the Big Island.


Enjoy the voyage!
