12.45:  it's changing course!  Too early to tell what is going on but it is not continuing in the great circle.  If I had a clue how to capture the screen and paste it in, I would.  Sorry.

This is clumsy but you can see the course change.  This was at 13.30.

There is a stiff wind today from the west.  My guess is that they are saving fuel.

The destination is still listed as 'Santa Cruz'

They are heading back this way.  This could be the restart of circle mode.  Or perhaps they'll head east.  I cannot believe I am so fascinated with this silly oil rig.

Critical juncture coming up.  It has just completed a circle-like pattern like previously.  The question is, where will it turn next?  Trust me to be idiotic enough to pay attention and let you know.  If you are reading this.  Perhaps you are not.  But I can't let such things worry me.

Look, just let us know if it ever does something interesting, OK?  :tiphat:

There was a larger than normal ship in the harbour today (the one near the Auditorium) so don't know if that's got anything to do with it.

If I decide to watch oil rigs, i'll stick with the one at Harland & Wolff for repair.

At least it doesn't move.  :rofl:
