    Re: TWO at the Lake with sextants

    About a year and a half ago my wife was showing me her childhood home town of Dana Point, California.  We walked down to the beach and encountered two fellows, one with a sextant, observing the sunset.  One of them uttered: "Right on the money" - I think they were observing the exact time of sunset, though I cannot be sure about that.  At that point I had been under standing orders from her to choose a Christmas present for myself.  I was totally clueless about that up to that very moment - and very much decided after that. :-)

    I have been wondering if those were NavList members, I know we have some from southern California.  Whoever you were, guys, thanks for solving my Christmas 2008 dilemma. :-))

    Any flying carpet next to this guy, Frank ? You maybe should have better looked around !

    'cause I also own a USN Mk.II sextant brought from the USA.

    't must have been me !

    ... and then I hurried back home onto our eastern side of the Atlantic, just to read that the other guy ... was just you !!!!

    Had I known before !!!

    Best Regards


    Kermit

    PS : I concur about Met Spring. When flying back here, the swallows told me Spring arrived just to-day here in Beautiful Western Atlantic Shore France.
