“Lyn’s Outside”

A month on..

As I look at my previous post, I smile.

So far we have come,

Our dream in action…

Sunset at Seven Spirt Bay

But before leaving the Top End we had to stop off to celebrate. Nestled within Carig Gunak Barlu National Park around the Colbourg Peninsula is a beautiful little resort.

It’s name Seven Spirit Bay.

A little bit of paradise in a vast vacant land.

We Celebrated….

 

We had completed our goals in the direction of our dreams, 4 years we’d been at it.

 

Our goal was to set Tiata up for some long term and remote cruising.

Lush and green, cool and serene..

We are now sitting near the tip of Cape York in Seisia, Queensland.

 

Waiting for the winds to abate..

 

But we are in no hurry, we’ll just toddle around here…

 

 

 

The Blueprint…

Plotting the Journey…

It’s getting close now,

the final jobs are slipping away,

the time has come for us to start proposing a direction…

Our first destination…

Cobourg Peninsula – Garig Gunak Barlu is a national park.

About 216 km northeast of Darwin by road.

Our sailing route 120nm..

It was established by joining the former Gurig National Park and the Cobourg Marine Park…

Vast and beautiful

Deeply indented bays and coves cover some 4.500 km²..

Virtually uninhabited…

Port Essington is an inlet and historic site located with in the park.

One of 2 failed attempts of early British settlement..

The ruins still remain…

(We were first through here June 2007 – en-route to the Kimberly’s)

Blackpoint Wharf.

For this we will probably set sail with the bottom of the tide in the evening to catch the ingoing tide through the Vernon Islands.

 and will ensure and outward tide around Cape Don..

With a hopeful lunchtime arrival…

Nestled deep...

Well that’s the loose plan.

It’s also the home of Seven Spirit Bay..

mmm maybe one last gourmet treat before virtual wilderness…

We will be there till we are ready to go..

 

 

 

 

Expect nothing…

Desire Everything…

Settling in…

It’s been a busy couple of days.

Out of one life..

Into another…

20130831-171303.jpg

Today I have had time onboard.

Clearing and sorting..

It’s great to be home…

We have spent 4 years putting together the best systems for Tiata.

Power is proving itself so far today we have collected 130 Ah, we have used our inverter which allows us to use 240volt.!

We charged up all our electrics and I used my computer plugged in…

Tomorrow I will use my computer on internal power and charge early in the day…mmm see what happens

It’s great seeing everything work.

We are heading remote..

In the most comfortable surroundings…

The Final Countdown…..

A Journey Outside…

 

In the craziness there is Peace.

 

Knowing, that these are my dreams are coming into reality..

Surrounded by Nature, connected to life…

 

My dream board...

My dream board…

 

My dream board is too big for the boat so.

 

So I will..

Dive into those dreams…

 

We called it the nest....

We sailed here with nothing but debt and a dream….

 

Today after I finish this blog I’m packing up my space.

I love this room, the view is awesome..

It’s where I created and meditated…

Disconnecting from the land takes time.

I’ve got the Accountant on the go..

And there’s still final jobs on Tiata…

Bit by bit though it’s coming together.

The load is lightening..

The way is clear…

Where creations are made..

Where creations are made..

 

Life is a beautiful creation

What’s next…..I can only imagine…

But in my belief,

It only get’s better…

 

Bring it on….
