30 October 2007 | Town Basin, Whangarei
Light winds, partly cloudy
Paul has been busy building me a step so I can get into the forward berth easily. We already had a fold out step on the starboard side, but I found it very difficult to get into the berth as the step was not high enough (I admit my legs are not long enough). So He has made another step directly under the berth and higher than the side step. Now it is two steps and up into the berth (a breeze).
After much contemplation and discussion, Paul has taken the Forward Hatch off, cut a hole in it (Paul hates cutting holes in things), and added a perspex window. It will make it so much lighter in the forward cabin, it will not feel like a cave anymore.
We were hoping to get out and do a bit of sailing, but I am involved in a production at a local Theatre over the next 4 weeks, so sailing will have to be put on hold for now. Unless we can squeeze something in.
We can't wait until Christmas, we are hoping to head to the Bay of Islands and cruise around for a couple of weeks. Our older Son Jason and His Girlfriend may be joining us for some of that time. Xavier will be spending some time with His Dad who will be visiting from Australia.
Anyway thats about enough rabbiting on.
