ALBI TROSS and the PILOT
Albi Tross is the story of waves and a small bird that sings the Mikado.
(the Mikado is a musical show by Gilbert and Sullivan written in 1885)

Albi Tross lives in a very wavy place, it is called the Pacific Ocean. It was a very big place and full of waves. Albi knows all about waves, far more than any one else he knew. This was not very difficult as he did not know many people.
The Pacific ocean is such a big place the chance of meeting another Albatross were pretty small. Even when two albatross do meet the last thing they want to talk about is waves.

Well, it was Wednesday morning. It could have been Thursday morning, Albi was not quite sure which, Wednesday and Thursday look very much the same in the Pacific Ocean. Well, it was one morning anyway and Albi was bobbing along on some very nice waves when a small rubber dingy came into view.

Albi knew it was a rubber dingy because he had sat on one some time ago just off the Galapagos Islands. That rubber dingy one was bright yellow, this one was a dirty brown. After a few more bobs up and down on the waves the dingy was coming closer so Albi decided fly over and investigate.

With a few flaps of his long wings Albi was sitting on the edge of the dingy. He sat looking at the dingy for a while, it was not very big, it was bobbing up and down on the waves and felt very nice and bouncy.

Albi was quite enjoying himself bobbing up and down in the morning sun.

He had just started to hum a tune from the ballad of the Ancient Mariner, when he noticed there was something in the dingy.

The object had a brown leathery shiny head, two very big round staring eyes, a white floppy thing round its face and neck, a shiny leathery body and big hands with only two fingers..
