16 May 2009 | Wollongong
Still in Wollongong but happy to be here, as the winds have really strengthened overnight, recorded 50 knots early this morning, so good to be tied up snuggly against something solid. Went for an early morning walk, picked up the NSW alternative to the Sat. AGE and had a leisurely read over breakfast. The esplanade and beachfront is a popular place for exercising with walking trails to Flagstaff Hill, running tracks and cycling paths. So it was a hive of activity around here this morning with many people out ...then the coffee shops and restaurants fill up a little later. This evening we plan to scale the big, fat, truck tyre that is our harbour fender at the moment and try one of the Thai rest. in town. The weather for tomorrow looks a little more promising with the winds going round to the SW, so we plan to head to the CYC in Sydney Harbour and catch up with our friends off Freycinet 11, who are already there.
