Odyssey on the High Seas

Not all who wander are lost.
J.R.R. Tolkien, English author (1892–1973)

If only Penelope, Odysseus' much-stressed wife, had the tools to track her husband's 10-year voyage home from Troy as I have to track our shipment of household goods! My brother and a guy-who-knows-a-guy led me to MarineTraffic.com where I could see pictures of my Clipper ship and watch its path on the Ionian Sea. What a great resource provided by the University of the Aegean! I wouldn't mind accompanying our boxes as they have just visited Athens and are on their way to Trieste. Right about now I can imagine them passing by the island of Ithaca. Perhaps Penelope is looking out to sea and is watching their passage too.
