Blue Moon is at my fingertip

22 December 2012
She is watching the progress at the penthouse, and waiting for us to take her sailing again.

When you sail into McLeod Bay, look for the trailer and the bunker on the hillside between Mt Manaia and Mt Aubrey, then come on up for a barbie!

Winter Solstice

23 June 2012 | McLeod Bay New Zealand
Blue Moon is resting for winter on her mooring, in front of our little patch of dirt. She has 56,000 miles under her belt since the last time she was here.

A Celebration!

AAARRR!! On Sunday Jan 22 thar be a gathering not to be missed!

It be 30 years since that old pirate Rob tied the clove hitch with his bride Jo, and the good ship Blue Moon was conceived in the pirate infested waters of the Caribbean (AAARRR). In celebration of the event, they be gatherin’ for a Sandbank party and piratical games at low tide on the McDonald Sandbank (that be the one in front of the Penthouse pirate cave in McLeod Bay). Thar be hardtak and grog, and some mighty fine pirates once the waters abated. Thar be a treasure chest full of prizes fer the games – treasure hunt, cannonball tossing, walk the plank and blow the man down.

Thanks be to the weather gods fer a fine afternoon, had by all. AAARRR!
