Small Talk #77


The speedboat was huge fun. But Granny didn't trust Baba! After we left Logos, Baba took the wheel. He and Daddy were going to share it. First destination Gaios, a beautiful harbour with an island. But to get there you had to pass the island through a channel.

Granny said to Baba "You'd better let Matt take over here."

Baba said "Why?" in his cross sort of way.

"He knows what he's doing!"

Then Baba said, unusually calmly, "Oh, I suppose 38 years owning my own boats don't count then?"

For once, Granny didn't reply... Baba stayed at the wheel.
