Back to Ila Bay

03 March 2012 | Port Davey, Tasmania
A lovely day. We had company late morning...folks on the sailboat "Xantia" from Kettering, actually from the Oyster Cove Marina at which we'll be leaving Cups for the winter months. We had a couple of cuppas and some muffins and got to know each other. Pleasant, friendly are most Aussies we've met...who have offered to keep a watch on Cups while we're gone. What an offer!

David spent the day cleaning stainless while Marcie went through lockers, drawers and suitcases full of clothes and miscellany with the intent of accumulating as much as possible for delivery to a charitable opp shop in Hobart. David completed most of the stainless and Marcie filled three huge bags full of unwanted clothing for off-loading. Three huge bags which she fully intends to refill in the US and bring back aboard the boat...just making room!

With the forecast of strong ENE winds for tonight and tomorrow, we moved mid-afternoon across the channel to Ila Bay again which affords better protection than Clytie Cove. The forecast for the next 3-5 days does not look promising for a departure any time soon. Luckily, Port Davey offers scenic vistas and lots of hikes to keep us occupied while waiting. And then, of course, there's always more boat work.
