We sailed from The Pittwater up to Port Stephens on Friday. A great 12hr sail apart from the last couple of hours. The wind got up to 40+knots and the swell was starting to build. We were very happy to pick up a mooring in Shoal Bay for the night.
Yesterday was still pretty windy so we moved over to Salamander Bay at Soldiers Point. It got a bit rough!
Luckily it was way better over there and we got ashore for a walk and had drinks on some friends boat in the evening.
Tim invested in a new start up business a few years ago for a little portable compressor to dive with. While we were in Sydney we got an email telling us it was ready to be shipped. Thankfully they let us pick it up from their factory. This involved a ferry ride, bus rides and train and light rail trips for Tim and a mate. It involved a day shopping in the city for Liz and Mrs Mate! We did however vote early so it was a good day.
The AirBuddy got packed away but Tim decided to use it today to clean Freya’s bum.
We are anchored in Fame Cove tonight which is very much like Dark Hollow. Tim drank all the rum last night so tomorrow we will re-provision before heading north on Tuesday.
Happy Mothers Day from Freya xo
