Another four days and we are in Manly outside Brisbane. It was an easy crossing. We are quite pleased with our own ability to pick "weather windows". We did, however, change destination since Coffs Harbour was forecasted to have 40 knots from the south during our approach. (Not only forecasted, it is blowing hard down there right now.)
So we are back to the western world with marinas and WiFi Internet in the boat. We "Skype" around to our friends back home and eat in restaurant. It is a bit hard to adjust. For 8 months we have become used to saying hello to everyone we meet. Here like at home it is a clear sign of senility. Still, it is nice being here. If we need adventure we can always go to the cinema.
We have updated our web page, but still only in Norwegian. An English version of our Vanuatu adventures will as promised be posted in the near future. See our website www.sailaway.no
