Lift off to New Caledonia in T minus 3 days.

Here's what we've been up to for the last little while:

The couple that anti-fouls together, stays together
Tackling the To Do list (this is only one fifth of the list, and we're proud to say we only got through about one fifteenth of the list, but we like to think it was the most important one fifteenth.)
You can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.
The very large ball of grey cordage that came out the other end of the washing line looking snowy white. Stay tuned for the "After" shot.

Crazy Adventure Part 1 was covered in Coastbeat magazine, amazing photos by Elize Strydom @twinrivers_

We're watching the weather now and hoping Miles gets back from rafting on the Tully in time for us to leave, or we'll be down a crew member.  A reasonably important one...

RJ with some young eco-warriors and their trash whale

The award-winning documentary about Earth's oceans, Blue, screened at our local cinema last Friday night, and one nervous 14 year old introduced it.  She wrote the speech herself and it's kind of a nice summary of our trip.

The audio is LOUSY but I can hear it on my computer if I put headphones on.

Mushies and Bushies!

It's officially autumn and we're all pretty excited about the weird and wonderful fungi popping up all over the place - so we went on a Mushie Hunt for bush school.

Warning: unless you get really excited about fungi, this video will probably be very boring.

But Mrs Stevenson (my senior Biology teacher), this one's for you :)

Life on Passage - a film about what we do all day when sailing from here to there...enjoy....

Wide Bay Bar at the southern end of Fraser Island, is renowned for flipping boats, and there are many disaster videos on youtube.  Here is us having a perfectly calm and sensible run.
