Thursday 18th and Friday 19th April 2013

Well Thursday was a busy day the guys fiddled about with the spinnaker pole, most of the day and I spent a good chunk of the day cleaning the hull in the dingy.
This was done with a lot of cursing from all, as I had such a hard time getting it clean and making the guys past me down all sorts of cleaners.

I tell you it was not easy even though we had the dingy tied to the boat it still would sway away every time I tried to scrub one spot, then I had to wait for it to sway back and try real quick to clean and on and on it went.
And yes I put a lot of pirates to shame with my language, it was so hard and frustrating, it nearly drove me mental.
But the end result was so worth it, and the Captain and I went for a little ride in the dingy and took a lot of photos.

Friday 19th April 2013

After the big day yesterday, I started the day very slow, but not for long.
The Captain wanted to go shopping early, so off we went, we pulled the dingy into the little marina here and the guy who runs it said he would run us into town, we actually only wanted to ask where to catch a bus, as we had bags of rubbish to get rid off, do some grocery shopping and get a gas bottle refilled.

Before we knew it the bags of rubbish was loaded into his pickup, gas bottle as well and us.

It's ok Bek no basement, but it did cross my mind.

Anyway he drops us off at the shopping mall, and said he will take care of the gas bottle, and come back and pick us up.
And so he did, with no dramas at all.

So now we are on Tornado watch.
I so hope it just stays as a watch and not alert that's when we need to worry.
But the Captain has made things secure and we have extra anchors ready to set out if need be.
The guys have gone ashore to the local tiki pub, it a big night tonight the place comes alive this is the start of the season for them so they are expecting a huge crowd, I have decided to stay on board as I have a gland up on the side of my neck it is all swollen, am just feeling off.
Tom has told me to watch the sky, if it turns green it means a Tornado, funny in oz that's hail to us.
So far all is good.

Well tomorrow is anther day.
