Milo is on land again
14 September 2010 | Port Vila, Vanuatu
Great news, after all this time being boat-bound, Milo is allowed ashore in Vanuatu. That decision came a couple of weeks ago (my apologies for not keeping up the blog) and now on some days when Milo sees they're getting back on the boat, he does the bolt. And there's lots of rats around the dock so he spends a lot of time hunting...not sure how much success he has. We now officially have his import permit for Australia and his certificate of equivalence to say the countries he's been in over the last six months are all in the same category and approved by Australia. Next steps are tests for certain diseases that have to happen within the 30 days prior to his export.
Ray's been crook with some sort of lurgy and is bored and lonely over there. Looks like Roberts popping over for a visit at the end of September. Great news about crew, Peter (Bella Vita) and a mate are going over and joining him for the crossing back home on the port2port rally...Pete's done the crossing a couple of times now.
