Ah Jim, it wont stay 13. And I'm sure it was different last week! And this is the season to be down there. You will get some warm days, but enjoy glorious long, and daylight, evenings. Port Davey/Bathurst Harbour is on my must-do list. Are you headed there this trip?
Oh yes, I know it will get better... but it was sure hard to get outta the bunk this morning! If the fuel
valve had been on (hard to get to) I would have started up the heater! In January!!!
And yep, we will be attempting to get back to Pt. Davey... one of our favorite places, simply stunning at times. And if the wx cooperates (ho,ho) we will try to get to Macquarie Harbour and the Gorden River once again. So many nice places, such a short season for us troppos!
At any rate, it looks like a narrow wx window might open up on Sunday and we'll bugger off from Eden and see how far we can get before the next frontal passage
. Yesterday we had 35-45 kts SW, peak gust 47. No worries here in East Boyd Bay, but noisy...
