We have guests – hooray!

Bex was our first guest (well apart from Dave our lovely relocation crew!) and totally revived my spirits by being the gorgeous pink whirlwind of joy that she is. Embracing the marina life, socializing at the evening BBQs and of coarse lots of shopping!
She is the first of many Tiki sirens


Goodbye land-life, well almost

We are officially live-aboards! And what a great feeling it is. After several years talking about it and wondering what it would be like we are here on our floating home. In a marina and still commuting to work for now with the cruising date set for mid July.

Do you know what?

It feels amazing! Simple. Uncomplicated. Liberating. At the same time just a little bit daunting – there’s so much work to be done on and in her! We are all smiles here though, time for sleeves up and elbow grease.

Brisbane update

Back from a great break in Thailand, now with so much to do. Neil is enroute from Keppel Marina and I’m packing up the flat ready to move onboard. Everything we bought for temporary use is back for sale on ebay or gumtree and we have arranged storage for the surplus – how easily we accumulated so much stuff after only 8 months here. Ruthlessness is the key, and with such limited space onboard the decisions are getting easier 🙂
