Back in the Land of Oz

03 November 2017 | Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
We arrived at the Customs Clearance station at 3 am and tied up to the dock, sat back and had a quite glass of our favourite poison. This is the first time that Monkey Fist has been back in Australia since February, 2011 and only the second time for us personally. It will be interesting to see how much has changed since we left. Time to hit the bunk as we have to be up in 3 hours to be cleared in after only 10 hours sleep in the last 3 days. I'm not really sure how that happened but that's how it goes sometimes and I'm not complaining, it's all a part of a life on the sea.

And just in case you are wondering... no, we are not finished yet.
