The album below includes photos from our two week, 1090 nautical mile, journey from Cairns to Darwin. Highlights include some beautiful sunsets, sights from our hike at Margaret Bay to Indian Bay along the trail of blue things, various sailing conditions, photos of the two boats we traveled with (s/v Calimero, and m/v Sea Change), photos of Tahina from Calimero, pictures of fish we caught, pictures of Cape Wilbeforce and Hole in the Wall, dolphin, and more.
I plan to put some of the photos into earlier posts on those subjects for reference. I also found some stuff we want to share with interesting stories to go along with them. Hopefully, I’ll find time to do them before we leave Darwin.
So, please have a look at the photos…
We have been very busy here in Darwin. The biggest project has been the mainsail. A post about that soon as well. While Karen has been doing most of the sewing, I have been organizing our departure from Darwin by going to the Indonesia Consulate for visas, going to Australia customs to file paperwork and set up our departure, getting an appointment for duty-free fuel, setting up to get our scuba tanks and LPG gas tanks filled, and getting started on the provisions. Lots more left on our list. We won’t be leaving before Wednesday next week because the visas won’t be ready. That probably means we won’t leave until Friday because we don’t want to arrive in Kupang in Indonesia on a weekend (they wouldn’t let us off the boat until we get clearance on Monday).
