    It's an a-maaazing spectacle. A whole flotilla of wellwisher boats accompanied her into the harbour. When she got off the boat she was all wobbly with sea-legs and the whole foreshore is covered with people.

    Good on her.

    She is an inspiration to more than a nation, teenagers and adults around the world. 

    I watched the coverage of her sailing into Sydney harbor and her stepping foot on land after seven months.  What an mammoth achievement.  It certainly makes me look at what I have/have not achieved in my life.

    Thank you Jessica Watson. smile
