Life is cruel, and full of irony. We lived in some of the best birds-watcher paradise, and always wondered how such a “hobby” could be so fascinating, why would you spend so many hours trying to identify them?
Well… well… the table has turned, as you can see we have now built a new library on bird watching, and marine life! This is partially Thank you to Katy for advising us on the best book to purchase, and also for sharing her love of the wild life! It’s a promise, we will make good use of them; then again we might never be able to spot a mammal the same way you do, that’s what university life does to you.
Yes you have seen it, discreetly hiding behind the others. Often, we are asked where are you going?
Our answer usually goes like this : Left turn, out of the straight and then wherever the wind and crew’s mental ability take us. And truly we don’t know where we will be in 1 or 2 years, last week was a great reminder, we had lunch with Carole and Ken (our friends we crewed with to San Francisco). They had made plan, but altered their route. On that note, one of their advice was “slow down and smell the rose”. Hopefully we are good listeners and will remember this enough to apply it in our new life!
And as we are meticulous prepers, the boat will be ready to make it to New Zealand with the proper cruising guides and charts. Just in case, we decide on the spur of the moment.
Above are the Honda generator parts for the stock, nice and easy just enough to keep it alive. Only one more order for the Yanmar and we are done on the spare part list. For the ones wondering our water line is still 3 inches up! Thank you very much.
