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…

 

Darwin to Port Essington

Darwin to Port Essington

 

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)

Wuwudri Walk

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..

Clearing the Weight…

Interlinked

 

The ‘Inside’ world and the ‘Outside’ world are so interlinked.

A lot of that ‘weight’ needing clearing was on my computer..

I have been taking photo’s for 15 years…

Around 2 years ago I got a new computer,

and dumped the load on the ‘new’ ‘clean’ drive.

 

It showed up in my neck..

 

I have since deleted over 111GB…

So grateful for new technology…

Transition….

House Cleaning…

 

Less then a week to moving back onboard Tiata.

It’s been a time of cleaning and clearing..

It’s been time consuming…

 

One thing I won’t give up is my time outside….

 

We’d hired a car for a couple of days.

 

We’d finished the chores..

 

So we were up with the sun and out the door…

 

So many road trains...

Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve

is one of several parks in the lower Adelaide River catchment that provides havens for wildlife in Darwin’s developing rural fringe.

One of the few wetland systems accessible to visitors all year round.

Mish-mash…

I don’t work well in mess,

and yet my life at this time is messy.

We are moving out of our rental apartment after 4 years and moving back on board our 37ft Catamaran Tiata.

 

There is  stuff EveRywHeRe…

 

I am determined not to take any excess, some things take a bit longer to let go of….

It’s CrAzY….

 

my world is changing...

Yet in amongst mayhem we take the time to walk.

 

To connect with the world outside..

 

To forget the lists and enjoy the simple soothing joyful pleasure of walking…

 

Breathing space.

The best of both worlds, both land and sea”

‘Bare Witness’ to Nature….

My purpose; simply is to bare witness to nature.

– in the dictionary it states:

“testify to; give or afford evidence of.”

 

To notice…..

Nature’s a wonderful artist,

 

here a fish in the rock and the colours are amazing…..

This is my first go of “blogging on the go….” as I’m going to be out an about.

I am in the process of moving……
