I started at the great river delta to the north, assuming I would spot the linear sea to the south if I bore east. I’d hoped to find something but desert, but this direction is as self-similar as the coast to the west. Sand and occasional rock to my right, the tideless sea to my left, and heat. I think this may be the wrong time of year to explore here, since it’s close to the solstice in this hemisphere. On the positive side, I haven’t encountered any major storms.
The coastline is beginning to swing north, rather before I thought it would. I didn’t follow the eastern arm of the linear sea, but I took it for granted that it also would approach the tideless sea to the north. The coast is turning north too fast, though. Of course I was following the west shore of the linear sea, before, and didn’t get too good a look at the eastern arm – perhaps I should check out that arm further?
In fact, I think I’ll do just that tomorrow.
Jarn’s Journal is the back story of the Jarnian Confederation, in which my published stories are set. Jarn is a human-like alien who was stranded in Africa after a starship wreck some 125,000 years ago. He has met and been adopted as a god (much to his annoyance) by a group of our ancestors. A longer version of this post can be found on my main blog; his journal to date is on my author site.
