Supply Ship Excitement and Jolly Good Paddling
Bear jumped up early and ran around about with his camera this morning. A ship is coming in. Yes dear, I’ll just turn over and have another hour, I feel five thirty a little early for this vexation. Guess what.................. I can’t wait a second longer.........
..............A full account of u-turn came forth.
To say I was thrilled when the skipper took his muesli to the cockpit for a front seat breakfast is an understatement. I got my hour.
I got up to find the Olomana of Avatu in fine form.
At nine we went to pick up Sofia and Blake (Windarra), timing our entry around the unloading.
Around a dangling container, but plenty of strong men to help hoist Baby Beez.
A good go at rock pooling.
Despite the stunning pools.........
Bear couldn’t help watching the unloading.
The men worked hard and we carried on with our exploring.
A couple of nice pencils, time to cross the wharf and scruff about there on the other side.
This side was more of a warm paddle in six inches of water.
Amazing to walk to the edge of the reef, but soon the tide turned and we moved on.
Up, along the road and down to a cute little beach.
Bear had plenty to watch.
We swam in the warm, natural pools, close to the girls.
A nice fat worm and a soft star, scruffy with a piece of seed stuck to him.
A good sized hermy (hermit), very hairy legs for rock bimbling.
Homeward bound, with not enough wind, so the girls looked like they were having a tiff, facing in all directions – a rolly night in the swell then.
ALL IN ALL GOOD BEANS
