Test update via HF.
moved to Long Bay for the north winds today. All is well aboard.
After a review of the weather and sailing conditions this morning we have decided to stay put here in Jervis. Looks like nice weather for exploring the bay from tomorrow on, we plan to do a few walks, resupply with fresh veggies and enjoy some sunshine.
Arrived here about 10.30am. Too much rain to take a picture. Catching up on some zzzz and heater is on drying out our wet weather gear. Just a little step closer to Japan. :-)
Looks like our waiting in Eden is coming to an end.... we will be off in the am, no fixed destination Jervis or Sydney see how we are going. We have had this boat along side this week filling up with logs 24/7. Mmm interesting.
Back to south anchorage Eden. Fingers and toes crossed for a departure on Thursday. Lucy enjoyed a nice rain shower this morning to wash away the salty Bass Strait crossing. All fresh again.
It’s a nice start to the day when you see a whale frolicking in the bay! Back in the Nth anchorage. Batten down the hatches for a windy arvo. ! Small visitor on board yesterday. See picture. (We must have upset him as he gave us a good telling off. )
All is well aboard :-)
We are doing the Eden Shuffle.. back in the Southern anchorage for the southerly wind then back to the northern side of the bay tomorrow for the north winds.
T-Shirts at last and of course last night another stunning sunset.
Finally the wind has eased and it’s quiet again. Birds are singing ! A trip ashore is the order for the day. We have not been on land for just over a week and the sandy beach awaits.
Had a relaxing day on anchor recovering from the passage across. Met some other folks on a beautiful sailer/trawler heading South to Tasmania. Will move back to Eden docks tomorrow for a top up of fuel, water and chocolate. Looks promising for a departure to Jervois Bay on Monday first light.
On a mooring in Eden!
All is well onboard
Should be in Eden around 10 ish. Tonight.
Survived the Easterly Gale now ready for tomorrow’s Sw gale. (Someone was actually surfing the breaking waves at the entrance to Prosser Bay this arvo!)
Stopped here to take the dinghy into Triabunna for a stretch of the legs and a small shop.
Alls well aboard!
Yesterday we moved to Maria Island, (Darlington) to sit out the Easterly weather on its way. Our 1.5 hour trip over included 2 Dolphin pods, a Whale sighting, stunning sunset and an interesting view of the harbour. Unfortunately the wind won’t allow us a trip ashore, but the weather will keep us entertained for the next 24 hours. !
Painting, reading and relaxing in the sun. The pictures are from the seaside village of Orford. Highlights for today ....seeing some fish (at last), finished painting the bulwarks and gazing into the clear water of the bay.
Sun is shining, nice dinghy trip into town.
Enjoying the relief of making it through Dunalley! Waiting for weather to cross the ditch..trying to remember how to use YIT again! Planning to visit Maria Island and surrounds for the next week. X
