PigPen’s Last Waltz

“The time has come,” the Walrus said,

“To talk of many things:

Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–

Of cabbages–and kings–

And why the sea is boiling hot–

And whether PigPen has wings.”


Yes, alas, PigPen is ours no more    There are no words for our Last Waltz together,  just a photo story ….



“Alas, poor PigPen! I knew him, Horatio: a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy: he hath borne me on his back a thousand times  …  Where be your gibes now? your gambols? your songs? your flashes of merriment”


P.S. The trip was great and included the Birdsville Track (boggy), 4 days water-logged in outback Longreach, a Whitsunday Charter (also wet), the outer Barrier Reef (wet again), the Daintree and FNQ (yes, wet too), Chillegoe, Lawnhill NP, Kurumba (Aye), Mataranka, Duncan Rd, the Dampier Peninsula and Karijini.  14,000 kms and about 24 inches of rain …and another 1000 memories to bank.
