Wednesday 8th May 2013

Today was going to be a on shore day, a visit to the laundromat again, get some groceries, pick up the spreader, go online with their free wifi, do a little bit of shopping, and go to customs, to extend our stay a bit longer.
Well that did not go to plan, we woke up to rain, wind and rough water.

I had a very bad night with not much sleep at all, so I actually went back to bed after only being up for an hour or so.
Well that did me the world of good and when I got up the weather was a lot better.

But it was getting late in the afternoon, so we decided to make a short list, I went to the laundromat, the Captain went to customs, then checked his emails and stuff, rang the riggers our spreader is ready to be picked up, then he came to get me but the washing was not completely dry, so I left him with it while I went to get some fresh milk, and then to check my emails and stuff.

You remember me telling you how expensive everything is here? Well it cost us over $50 to do the laundry, and to get two litres of milk cost $7 crazy crazy stuff.

So I'm sitting here checking emails and there is a wedding in front of me in the court yard, well taking photos, I kid you not I counted 9 bridesmaids, it was crazy, to me it looked like 3 main bridesmaids as they had dresses that had gold, green and purple, the all the other had only one of these colours each, and they all wore Mardi gras masks in a gold colour, very different but entertaining to watch.

I was sitting there chatting to an older couple and they said you must come from Australia, most people guess it right, or say New Zealand, as if a sound like a kiwi, huh not like someone I know Mr Ant...hahaha
So they all ask where about it AUS do you come from and we always say about 100km north of Sydney, and they so oh near Newcastle, hahaha that was a first no one knows Newcastle, but they where an English couple and they had spent some time in Newcastle playing bowls, the people you meet.

Anyway we finally get back to the boat, was very choppy getting back but we made it in one piece.

Well tomorrow is another day.
