“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

"follow the dream"

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.

Nature...

Lush and green, cool and serene..

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…

7 apr – Easter Cruising Log

Quiet Morning 7/4/12

Up with the  rising sun, and a beautiful breeze lasted throughout the night.

Headed over to the west side of Indian Island, put out the crab pot though no luck.

Too hot for them, too hot for us so we decided to head back to Crab Claw, more breeze.

I do love cruising up the river systems, snaking around the twists and turns.

We were treated to an afternoon storm, lovely to cool down the decks.


The birth of the day

 

 

I was hoping to do my blog daily, but we were out of range and truthfully I just love watching the world..

Only crazy men and fisherman in the heat of the day......

Tide breathes in.....

Tide breathes out

 

Mangroves of Indian Island

 

 

It's hot and a storm is brewing..

this is what hot looks like...

getting dramatic...

 

relief....

building.....

then we were blessed with a cooled refreshed evening…

6 apr – Easter Cruise Log

Set sail 6/4/12 – 730 am

Heading Bynoe Harbour (next harbour SW of Darwin)

As big as Darwin Harbour yet largely uninhabited dotted with fishing shacks and pearl leases and Crab Claw Island resort. A fisherman’s haven.


We sailed flat waters under clear blue skies…

cruising along..

Our new 235watt solar panels working a treat.

beautiful blue

reflect..

fishing camps

"the only way is up....."

pure joy

We watched as the Full Moon traverse the sky…..

Safe....

relax...

Left 5/4/12 – 1600hrs.

A sail around the harbour.

Cullen Bay to Fannie Bay

Beautiful sunset, first boat for the season to anchor in Fannie Bay – Only this morning we did an early morning walk and I said to Rudy “won’t be long till the boats are back for the season” and it was us…

We started the day early, nothing like a pre-dawn walk to nourish the soul…

30 mar 2012 – Morning Glory

It’s quite amazing in the Top End.

We have two seasons,

‘wet’ and ‘dry’

‘hot & humid’ and ‘sweet’

and they change so quick

from one day to the next.

We have entered the ‘sweet’
