Yawning through the Yucaltas.
17 May 2013 | Big Bay, Stuart Island
Okay - it wasn't exactly a yawn as we were both quiet and focused appraoching the Yucalta Rapids - I haven't done this before and I had a knot in my belly, but we had done our homework and ensured we'd be there at slack tide, which means the current is still for a few minutes and we can move from one point to another without encountering rapids at their worst!
As we went along we said happy birthday to Gren and happy last Pharmacy final to Christopher...
We arrived in pouring rain - my fist time to dock decked out in all my rain gear that really does work!! We walked to Eagle Lake in the rain and tried to find a laundromat or a pub but both to no avail... our laundry hamper is filling up rapidly.
The highlight of Stuart Island was reconnecting with our friend Blake. We met him in Mexico where he played a significant role on "Nev's Day" and kept us in stitches of laughter on those windy days in Puerto Escondido with silly games and sailboat races. It was fabulous catching up with him and seeing him happy with his Patti.
Boerewors and Buzz's mac 'n cheese were on the menu - perfect for a cold, wet night between friends.
