After 6 days at sea, we arrived during gale force winds in Australia!
Typical, a nice rough last 12 hours to keep us on our toes. We arrived at
01h01 minutes on the 1/11/2011, not sure the significance but glad I did not
put millions on horse number 1 on the Melbourne cup which was run yesterday.
Number 3 won!
Maybe we are 1st class sailors....ok doubt that, maybe we will only have $1
left when we leave Australia.....who knows....it was probably just the date!
When we in rough weather I close the sea cock for the shower as water can
come through and flood the shower room. Vic had a shower and then started to
pump it dry, obviously the water was not going out so she called me and said
there is something wrong with the shower pump.....her explanation was
perhaps it's because it is high tide!!! We have been married 8 years
(30/10/11) and she can still bring tears to my eyes, laughter or
frustration...same thing. I opened the sea cock and she sheepishly asked me
not to repeat this story as she does not want to be seen as too blonde.
Anyway I assured her there is now way I would repeat it, so please no
So that's the short update, will write more when we have settled in.
