On Board the Star
Expanded Kuiack Version: I decided to board the Star of India late this afternoon - Friday Afternoon - before going on the sail tomorrow. I wanted to visit the ship when it was quiet and not packed full of people like it will be tomorrow.

I first went to the Museum store onboard the ferry Berkely and bought a baseball cap since I left mine at home - and despite not being concerned anymore about being folically challenged, I seem to wear them alot... I found that most of the staff were busy prepping for the big show, and decided to buy a membership to the museum. Will I use it often? No. But I will be helping them preserve part of my history. It was getting on to dusk when I boarded the Star.

I can't describe how cool this was. Going up the gang way and stepping onto the solid 4x4 thick wood strips that make up the main deck just forward of the saloon entrance. I am still trying to have it sink in that I was on the ship that my great great grandfather Thomas Eddes Phillips commanded from 1872-1884 on trips from England to New Zealand. The ship was pretty quiet, with hardly any crew onboard and maybe two or three other tourists. I essentially had the whole ship to myself.

Carpe Diem
