Seeking the Wild Platypus


We plan to go Walk About in Australia.   It has been a few years (1973) since I landed in Sydney as a supernumerary steward on the Manutea, and later worked as a crew boss for a geophysical company in the Great Sandy Desert.   Now we expect to cover from east to west coasts with stops in the middle, as well as a couple of islands including Tasmania..where I hope to finally see a platypus in the wild.

Until then, I will leave you with a sample of an old comic strip of mine that never made it into the newspapers. The star is a platypus.
