I havent blogged in a while i know.. been a bit busy ...
3 weeks ago we left Gold Coast heading for Moloolaba, it was hard for me to say good-bye to all my friends and family down there, but it was hardest saying goodbye to David.
We knew we weren't going to see eachother for at least 3 weeks, until our 1 year anniversary (28th May 2011). Its the longest we have been apart since he went to europe for 3 months in 2010.
We said our goodbyes and headed to Moloolaba staying there for 2 days waiting for the right tides to cross the Noosa Bar, our next destination. We had a f
Hi everyone, we have just arrived back in Noosa Heads and are hoping to stay for about 10 days, then we will start heading to the Great Sandy Straits and Bundaberg on our journey up the East Coast of Australia.
It has been a busy three weeks preparing the boat after Adam arrived back from New Guinea, but we are well and truly on our way! We left Sanctuary Cove on Tuesday the 17th of May and motored up to Tipplers passage, we anchored for a couple of hours and went for a walk around the old Tipplers resort which is desperately in need of repair and found out that Tipplers is to be sav
To those friends and family that have been checking the web site I apologise for the lack
blogs lately, what can I say it has been a hectic few weeks. Firstly we sold our old boat and my Nissan Patrol, we did not get what we wanted but at least they are gone and we have put some much needed funds into the bank. They both went to a lovely family from the NSW central coast and we hope that they enjoy the Searay as much as we did. That happened on a Thursday the 14th of April and on the Friday a good mate of mine Andre rang me and said that the trip to PNG that he had bee
Hello there Bloggers.
I just want to give you an update on the documentary.
We have Received the lovely support of Rode Microphone, who have generously provided us with 2 Lavalier Microphones and a Shot gun microphone, along with numerous accessories.
I would like to thank Scott Emerson Very much for his support and generosity. Without Rode's kindness our documentary could not be possible.
I would also like to thank Canon for their support as we
Sorry I haven’t blogged in a while I have been very busy and having lots of fun.
- Fun things I’ve done in the past weeks:
- Played with my cousins down at Pottsville in New South Wales and went to the beach with them.
- I had a family dinner with my cousins on dads side at an Italian restaurant
I went to SeaWorld and....
- I touched a stingray
- I went on the Viking ride I didn’t think it would be scary but it sort of was because you go down like vertical
- It sucked that I didn’t get to go on all the rides because we didn
Good Morning Friends,
We have certainly had an eventful few weeks.
Finally after waiting for the weather to clear, we made the sail to the wrecks at Tangalooma on Moreton island. The water was amazing for the first 2 days, Mac and I went kayaking all around the wrecks, and out into the waves and into one of the ships themselves, it was really cool! We eventually
Well the real journey is about to begin.................
We plan to start our trip up the East Australian Coast to the beautiful Whitsundays and beyond in the next couple of weeks. Somerset Cat has been prepared withnew storm covers, a water catchment system to catch the rainwater, new shower pumps and tap ware (new shower heads for the girls and new mirrors, definitely a must have!!), the generator has had some parts replaced and serviced, all the safety gear has been tested and upgraded when needed, new hand held GPS for back up, Epirb
Sam has been challenged quite a bit lately, as we have been moving
back and forth between family, boat, friends, boat and back again. This has not been particularly easy for him, as being Autistic means change is difficult, and altering routines can create anxiety, confusion and fear. Sam has been very good considering the unsettled environment at the moment.
I find that Sam has days where his Autism is very noticeable, he tends to be in his own world, without much interaction and fiddles with his soft toys picking and pulling at them. Then there are days where his is acutely aware of eve
Well we finally managed to get back to Tangalooma after spending a couple of days at a mates jetty in Cleveland.
We moored close to the wrecks and the kids had a couple of snorkels around the wrecks and where freaked out by all the fish that surround you waiting for food. I went over for a swim with them and one of the local tour guides came over and threw a slice of bread between as all, the fish went crazy. It was a pretty wild having so many fish fighting over the bread right in front of you. The guide said that if you hold the bread between the palms
We are on our trip to Tangalooma at the moment,
However the wind has been southerly and up to 30knots over the last few days and we decided that Tangalooma wasn’t safe in such rough seas. We parked next to the powerlines on our first night on our trip, we crossed underneath the powerlines for the first time, and we were all very nervous, although we had been told we will easily clear the lines, they looked very close to our mast. Dad made us all stay away from any metal just in case. After we made it though we parked for the night, waiting for the
Yesterday we went to the science centre and the museum at Brisbane
At the science centre there was lots of things that were interactive,
There was a spinning chair that when u pulled in tight you went faster then when you let loose you slow down,
We all held hands and made an electrical circuit and lit a light bulb,
There was a test your strength activity where you had to squeeze two handles and dad got it to the top,
There was a ten metre sprint and it gave you your time,
There were lots of optical illusions this one looks like my head is on a plate.
