The Keppel's By now Tres Amigos and Captain Tony of Double Shot had caught up to us, but   A Jornada was just leaving. We stayed at the Keppel’s for a while then Captain Tony left, we stayed for a couple more days then we headed to the reef with Tres Amigos. We went to North West Island; it was an OK anchorage but Tres Amigos Anchor Wouldn’t grab so we rafted up. But it didn’t last, it got too swelly so we had to untie. Then Tres Amigos went and anchored and it grabbed so we stayed there for the night. In the Morning dad checked the weather forecast and the wind was coming up so he decide

Hi everyone we have just night sailed from Magnetic island, Nelly bay to Gloucester passage and everyone is exhausted so here is a catch up of the last week or so. From port Douglas we made our way to Hinchinbrook. While we were moored mum wanted to go for a drive in a little river that we were next to, on the way back the motor conked out and we had to row a kilometre to get back to the boat. And the worst thing is there is CROCODILES but we did not see any thankfully. The next mooring we went to we caught three mud crabs and a fish. From Hinchinbrook we headed to Orpheus Island. At Orpheus w

Hi everyone sorry I have not blogged in a while I have been soo busy………

We are at Lizard Island now and its soo cool, it’s really clear and we have snorkelled everyday and sometimes twice a day it’s awesome. While we were snorkelling we saw giant clams is the clam gardens some were two metres long and one metre wide

We also saw a parrotfish as big as me it was awesome. There are lots of clownfish everywhere they are very shy though so you need to look very closely, We also saw angelfish, they are quiet shy as well though.

Ahoy mate’s It has been very boring sitting at Grandmas doing nothing. Although Lauren  and I saw Rango last night, it’s a really  good movie but  different to what I thought it  would be. Last weekend we went to my cousin’s birthday party. The party was at the park and it rained a bit, Lauren dressed up as a fairy  and was face panting all the kids at his party. After the party we went to his house, he opened all his presents and I slept over at his house. We are going to Tangalooma in a week I’m looking forward to going its going to be so fun That’s all for n
