The Southern Cross
The song Southern Cross is the anthem for many would-be cruisers, possibly including our friend Kirk who just recently caught up with us. He was quite excited the other night when, for the first time, he was able to see the Southern Cross constellation in the sky (we think*), it only being visible when you are far enough south.
It just so happens that Southern Cross was one of the songs that we were playing in our little impromptu jam session that we had onboard Kirk and Donna’s boat Ainulindale the other day. And yes, I was able to join in with my guitar-playing friends with my new Little Martin, brought south for me all the way from Norfolk, VA, on our friends’ boat. Isn’t that cool?
*The wikipedia article I linked above talks about the False Cross which is sometimes confused with the Southern Cross. I need to check tonight to make sure that we’re not looking at it instead.
