Year 5 Day 65 A Day For Provisioning

05 April 2012 | Bundaberg {Port Marina
Dave/Mostly Sunny
I am afraid today was not a very exciting day. We had rented a car from the marina and drove the 20 or so kilometers into Bundaberg. Once there, we spent the better part of the day going from place to place, collecting things that were on our “We Need” list. Since today was the day before Good Friday, the town was packed with people. Everyone was doing the same thing we were since most stores and banks would be closed from tomorrow through Monday for the Easter holiday.

I needed to go to one of the banks to deposit our Sail Indonesia Rally fee. Yep, we are biting the bullet and will be sailing in our first real rally this year. Not a pretty thought since we are not really rally people. We have sailed in two other “Rallies” before, but both were rallies in name only. You really sailed by yourself and the rally was really just a name for all of the parties you got to attend at the end of the cruising season destination you were sailing to. These two rallies went from Tonga to NZ and from Vanuatu to Bundaberg.

However, the Sail Indonesia Rally is a multi-stop rally with planned festivities at each destination. Thus, boats tend to leave each port at the same time. We have heard many nice things about this rally and since the rally people handle the majority of the paperwork we need to have to sail through Indonesia, we thought we would give it a try. One of the really bright points of this trip is that our former cruising friends, Portia and Steve (formerly of S/V Dream Caper), will be joining us in Bali for a couple of weeks. We can hardly wait to see them again!

We ended the afternoon at Coles, a large supermarket, where we loaded up with a number of goodies. We will go shopping for provisions one more time before we leave Bundaberg in the next week or two.

To conclude the day, we returned to Bundaberg for dinner at the Brother Sports Club. Thursday night is their roast night and it is only $4.95 per person. We had been told that it is very good and were anxious to give it a try. While the meal was good, we had visions of thick roast beef dancing in our heads. Alas, the meat was thinly cut and was in bits and pieces. It had been slow cooked at low temperatures so it was very tender but not as flavorful as our imaginations had envisioned. Nevertheless, at $4.95 for a complete dinner, it was a pretty good deal.

Since everything is closed tomorrow, we are projecting that it was be a restful day interspersed with work on the never ending list of minor boat projects…
