John: How are doing? All right?
Mark: Alright.
John: Are you having a good ride?
Mark: Yeah, I am having a great time.
John: Ah. It is a lovely day,isn’t? All those black clouds above us.
Mark: Yes. Did you see the dolphins and the flying fish before?
John: No. You saw them, did you?
Mark: Yes, at the bow there.
John: Wow! Have you seen this tattoo? I have got a dolphin on my tattoo.
Mark: Wow! Dolphins are great, aren’t they? I love dolphins. So. How? (When) will we be there? So how far is it now?
John: Well, what do you think? You can see it in front of you.
Mark: Right. Ok. How long will it take?
John: Maybe about another two and a half hours.
Mark: Right.
John: If we don’t run out of fuel. We could run out of fuel actually. I forgot to load the fuel on.
Mark: Oh no! What are we going to do?
John: I have got some fishing rods. Do you like fishing? We could do some fishing.
Mark: Yeah I like fishing. If we run out of fuel, what will we do?
John: Fishing.
Mark: Fishing?

      “Good Day John” means “Hello, John”.
      It is a common greeting in English.
      Good day to you!
      I wish you a good day!
      I hope you have a nice day.

    Jarek

    • Aaron says:

      Hi Jarek…’Having a yarn’ with someone means to have conversation with them, to talk with them, to speak with them. From the way I understand it, it has a casual, friendly, meaning to it. You do not “have a yarn” in a formal situation. I could be wrong, since I did not grow up with this expression and am not completely sure how it is used in different contexts. I think it is Australian English. I am from the USA.
