There are worse places to be stuck in than the Keppel Islands, but stuck we are for a few days while an Easterly is blowing.
It is an odd start to our Summer Cruise. We don’t know what to do with ourselves: too hot to go walking ashore and too many sandflies (we are already covered with bites), storms that come and go, drenching us with rain one minute, then brilliant sunshine the next… But the temperature of the water is a balmy 260C so we are in and out of there all day long. We wanted a rest and we have it!
But you know us, we can’t sleep all day and just have to tinker. Here is an example:
The hulls were developing a forest – we can’t have that! There is frantic scraping happening. Wade is doing the scraping, Chris is playing with her underwater camera, Bengie is supervising at a safe distance from the wet stuff.
Here are a few pictures of life on Take It Easy!
