We've had two lovely evenings at Fame Cove, Port Stephens, as honourary members of the Cruising club of the Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club. Six boats rafted together that made for lots of fun and social interaction while watching incredible sunsets.
One of our neighbors is Sinti a beautiful, friendly, boat savvy Bischon who won our hearts. ❤️
Tomorrow the plan is to head towards Forster about 55nm north along the coast. ... See MoreSee Less
Lea is a member of a world wide women's boating FB group called WOBs (Women on Barges) and put out a post during the week saying that we were in Newcastle. We received a message back from WOB Judy Lynne explaining that she lives in the region while not boating in France, so we invited her and her partner Peter down for some drinks. It was lovely to catch up with a fellow WOB and Judy was nice enough to bring pumpkin and fresh herbs from her garden.
We finally got the davit repaired and Kermit has taken up his sea station on top of the boat.
Heading off this morning to start our journey back to Queensland. ... See MoreSee Less
Meet Kermit (our dinghy) and Baby Webby (our new BBQ). We took our new home out for a spin in Newcastle harbour this morning, avoiding as we went all the logs and debris that has floated down after the recent floods. Due to all this debris it's a bit too dangerous to travel right now, so it looks like we are staying in Newcastle for the next week. Getting the boat shipshape doing lots of little jobs, fixing up and organising. Enjoying turning Compass Gypsea into our home. ... See MoreSee Less
