Where we are today.

The wind has finally dropped in the Windysundays for the first time in the month we have been here.

My days are chock full of lazing around, a bit of internetting (if you didn't notice!), snorkeling and a little more lazing till dinner is ready.

I did a boat job yesterday.... changed the gas bottle

What else.... not much

This post, and photo I just took 5 mins ago, is designed to:

a) annoy you
or
b) motivate you

Been a while since I was there, but it looks like Blue Pearl bay?

Anyway, not a bad backyard... I'm hoping to get up there this winter.

How do we really know that this isn't a dabolical photoshop trick picture? You could actually be hauled out of the water in a pasture with the cows at Monty's boatyard in Caboolture. I want proof that you are actually in paradise. Where's the melted butter?

Let's assume your intentions are good and go with option (b).

Hoping to get 'out there' too someday soon, on a Beneteau as well. Maybe our paths will cross...
