Colleen called a lay day from sailing, and we vegged about the boat in Butterfly Bay. I kept busy recording all the serial numbers of equipment, tidying up the toolbox and reorganising infrequently used gear into out-of-the-way spaces.
Had a second visit from a semi-tame seagull. Brave bugger was actually eating from my hand. Colleen was not amused.
I also ‘discovered’ another couple of nooks and crannies. I can understand why Customs need sniffer dogs.. if they had to look everywhere on this boat it would take forever.
We still have strong wind warnings current, which means a trip out to the Reef is not a good idea. I’m all for giving it a bash for a quick day trip if the weather is too bumpy for an overnight stay, but we’ll see how the week progresses.
We jumped into the water mid-afternoon for a bit of a snorkel. No wetsuits, but the water was reasonably comfortable after a few minutes acclimatisation. I’m getting some good depth freediving.. I’ll take a divecomputer next time to see how deep I can get without tanks.
Watched ‘Avatar’ and had a nice meal of veal and veggies, and then watched ‘Spaceballs’. I was falling asleep during the last few minutes of the flick, and must have zonked out as soon as my head hit the pillow.
