25 December 2010 | Spencr Bay, Queen Charlotte Sound
Merry Christmas to you! We had a great time anchored in Queen Charlotte Sound. Karen's Mum, Marie, arrived on Monday to spend the festive season with us. We had a nice breakfast with the ladies having a very healthy meal of muesli (all very "holier than thou") and Craig having a very unhealthy bacon and eggs. About lunch time, we were joined by friends Don and Sue who travelled over from D'Urville Island just to see us.... either that or it was the only break in the weather they had to get here! We managed to consume a copious quantity of their gin before they left about 7pm.... now that's what I call Christmas spirit!! We managed to keep a crayfish alive for Christmas dinner (until we cut him in half - we called him Cray Charles) so we had crayfish and scallop mornay, a wine and then slept like babes. I am now a big fan of Queen Charlotte Christmases.
We did get some exercise by taking the dinghy to the beach and having a stroll. The beach was about 20 metres long but it still counts, I reckon. We took this pic from the beach.
