Asanvari - a Quiet Day - Cate On the Mend
The Adventures of the Good Ship Equinox
Cate and Chris Galloway

We have deliberately had a quiet day of it due primarily because we have all been feeling the effects of the tummy bug which is going around to greater or lesser degrees. Cate, who has been suffering the worst of us is now on the mend and is making a gradual return to the world of food.
The result of it all has been that we have elected to bow out of rally activities for the day to concentrate on rest, recouperation, and not straying too far away form the head (boat word for toilet).
A unique aspect of the anchorage here has been our daily visits from Christopher Columbus, the local baker, who paddles his dugout around the yachts at 6.30 in the morning with a big clear plastic storage bin of fresh bread to sell to us yachties. It's kid of a new take on the cappicino boat which we were used to on Middle Harbour in Sydney.
Our plan for tomorrow turns on how we feel when we get up. As we have been unwell, we haven't been able to invite our host family out to the boat for morning tea, so if they are not invlved in chirch tomorrow we will make the effort. The next anchorage is only a couple of hour sail away to the south on Pentecoste Island, so it won't matter if we don't depart until a bit later in the day.
