DSC04462 Mornings and nights are special on a boat. The atmosphere becomes reflective and a little mysterious. It's not easy to capture with a photo - although I've tried many times.

Chris Stevens (Crystal) just sent me this photo of Te Moana at Coal & Candle Creek, taken at dusk one day over the recent long weekend. Really special, thanks, Chris.

CRG_081220_0011 We've long wanted some shots of Te Moana from above. We were spoilt with our previous boat - Watty, which had some great photos taken from a helicopter.

Craig took a series of nice shots of Te Moana this past weekend. Not from a helicopter but from a close equivalent, West Head.  The weather could have been a bit more exciting, but the shots a great! Thanks Craig.

And our plans for Christmas? Leaving around 28th, we're sailing down the South Coast with an ambition to get as far as Batemans Bay, weather willing. As always, you can follow along on Skipr.

Merry Christmas

Google has updated its maps so now we can really find out where Te Moana is moored.

Rosslyn Bay

The past few days we've spent at Rosslyn Bay, probably the marina we've enjoyed best on the trip. The nearest town is Yeppoon, the best known closest centre is Rockhampton.

Tomorrow we sail for Pacific Creek, the start of the Narrows, which will get us to Gladstone the day after.

Te Moana at anchor at PearlBay

You can categorize most of the places we've been to as:

  • Developed (look for Jetskis and Caravans)
  • Being developed (planted Palms and real estate signs)
  • National Park (picnic tables and signs telling you what [not] to do

But we've just again passed through an area which is none of the above. With beautiful places like Port Clinton, Pearl Bay and Island Head Creek, looking just like they would have done 20,000 years ago. No picnic tables or signs. Unspoiled beaches and bush. And why is it so? They are in the Australian Army's Shoalwater Bay training area.

Te Moana heading South

We've reached our furthest point North and are now officially on our way home. We skipped lots of places on the way up which we hope to visit on our way back South. We expect to be back in Sydney on October 1.More when when get back to Rosslyn Bay...

We needed some additional crew for our sail to Keswick Island, so some assistance flew out from Sydney. Terrific couple of days.
