After two months of transitioning from life on land to life afloat, we are on our way, feeling a bit frazzled but elated. At long last, Sunday 30 July, we cast off the mooring lines and left behind modern trappings, the city, the noise and the bureaucracy to sail into the future! From now on, we will live a simpler life. We want to extract what we can from nature: wind, water, sun. We will make do with what we have got: limited space, limited gear, but a limitless outlook. To be out there, you need to be a bit “out there”. It is not for everybody, but it is right for us.
Our dear friends Ann and Greg accompanied us for the first two days of our escape out of Port Phillip Bay, along the Victorian Coast to Cleeland Bight at Phillip Island. It is magic to be underway and it is special to start this new season in our life with our adventurous friends on board. Momentous times shared are made even more precious.
Here are a few images of this huge highlight in our life. As usual, click on the first image to display in full screen slide show.
