Townsville to Airlie Beach
06 November 2009
The second leg of our trip served up some much nicer weather, we even got an "I love sailing!" out of Anna, who was pretty seasick a few days ago as well. We sailed through some coral spawning, which as you can see above, was vast and sort of out of this world.
Chris was busy busy busy though...while the sail went smoothly, the toilet got clogged and he (unwillingly) had to unblock it. Let's just say Anna owes him a 6-pack. A few hours later, the engine just completely shut off. Chris worked his magic, put some more diesel in the tanks and fiddled around down below to get it working again so we could cruise into Airlie with no problem.
The most exciting thing that happened to me was getting hit directly in the face with a huge wave in the middle of the night...of course some of it made its way down to Chris's bed too. Sorry!
