Tuesday 7th May 2013

Well today Tom has left us.
This has come with a lot of mixed emotions, we are sad to see him go, and happy as well.
It has been a long and hard road, from July last year, to now, but we are finally doing what we started out to do.

We are on our own, about to take off into the wild blue ocean, scary, scary stuff.
I'm sure we will have good and bad times, at least we no what we are in for now, and as we go along our Journey we will get to know more an more about our boat, and
what she likes and what she hates.

I'm not sure I'm ready am very nervous about going out there just the two of us, but we will never know unless we get out here and do it.
We were hoping to get away on Thursday, but it's looking like it may be Friday, and yes I know you should never set sail on a Friday, but we may just have too.

A rigger was going to come on Wednesday to fix the spreader but its looking like strong winds and rain so that may not happen.

We have both been real busy all day getting the boat back in order and clean, so that if we do leave on Thursday we will be ready.
And late in the afternoon we both had a hot shower, it may not seem so exciting to some but believe me when water is limited and you just can't turn on a tap and have hot water, you have to start the generator and let it run for about half an hour to heat up the hot water,so you put it off for days, an when you get to have a shower it's so nice I can tell you.
I do have a wash the days we don't get to shower so don't worry am not too feral yet...hahaha

Anyway after our shower we just had a drink on deck and enjoyed just getting back to being us, it's was so nice.

Well tomorrow is another day.
