Percy Island, well actually we are at what they call Middle Percy Island.

What a pretty place this is, I could quite easy spend a lot of time here, we even managed a decent night sleep with just a bit of rolling, or just maybe we were so warn out from our eventful day yesterday.

In the morning we dropped the dingy and went ashore to have a look at the A frame building here.
We have heard about this before and apparently for over 40 odd years, passing boats have stopped and hung up a sign or leave sometime there that says they have been there, they have a BBQ area that you can sit with other yachties and pass the time of day or night if you feel like socialising, considering we were the only boat left in the bay, that may have been a bit awkward. I guess we could have socialised, with each other....haha

There is actually a couple who live here full time and you can go visit them at their homestead as well, also there is a guy who lives here too in a little shack and actually came down to say hi while we were there, The Captain and him had a nice old chat.

But talk about memorabilia man there is so much stuff here you really don't know where to start looking, people hang up anything and everything, from signs to old boat parts, to toys, bottles even undies.

Of cause we had to hang something we decided to do a message in a bottle, we get to work The Captain writes up the sign, with our boat name, date and our names.
He holds it up for me to look at, I give him my approval I take some pics, we battled a few times to get it in the bottle, and finally it opens up inside the bottle, more pics, we take it ashore with us, The Captain hangs it up more pics taken, we finally go back to the boat, after a nice morning spent ashore.

As I said before I wanted to stay here a few days, but we knew we were going to get some really strong winds in the afternoon, and the anchorage we were in would of turned real ugly real quick.
So off we go we are about halfway there when I decide to check out the pics I took earlier, we had taken so many and also some really good ones, which I will post on here as well, I think I've culled it down to around 30...haha
Well I show  The Captain the pics he takes a look and mumbles some Pirate Language, I look at him wondering what has got him all upset, he shows me the pic and he not me has realised that we have spelt Wind Wanderer, as Win Wanderer...hahaha I'm so glad he wrote it and not me, but in all fairness I was the one taking all the pics and should of noticed it as well.

So if you happen to go past the island and drop in, go search for Win Wanderer in a bottle hanging off a guitar and please please add a big D, cause there is no way he is going  to turn the boat around to go back to change it, now if it was a dingy....haha

Well tomorrow is another day.
