We were able to get a 20 day visa to visit the Galapagos. Of those days we spent some on the island of Santa Cruz where Terrwyn is anchored then went on a 4 day cruise tour with 14 other people. The cruise took us to: Bachas Bay on Baltra Island, , Genovesa Island one of the most remote of the islands, Bartolome a volcanic islet just off the island of Santiago and finally Isabela, the largest island in the archipelago. A highlight for us was our final snorkelling time at Los Tuneles on Isabela. Imagine drifiting amongst numerous giant Green Turtles as they browse the seaweed. Bill even saw a large Seahorse, 8-10 inches in height! It was too far down (about 5 metres) for me to dive to. Seahorses are notoriously hard to find so this was quite a coup for the group to find.

We sailed from Trinidad to Bonaire and then on to Santa Marta, Columbia. After a few days we took the bus to Cartagena and stayed overnight. Lovely historical town. From Santa Marta we sailed to the San Blas Islands visiting 3 different islands, one of which had a traditional village with very friendly Kunas. One of our favourite anchorages was the Swimming Pool Anchorage in the Holandes Cays. BBQ Island was sweet with a grass hut cafe that served fresh fish dinners every night - the guys would go out fishing at 6pm and the fish was served at 7:30. Talk about straight from the hook to your plate!! Transit the Panama Canal is another adventure.

On November 13, 2014 exactly one year to the day (and almost to the hour) when we sailed into False Bay from the east we set sail for the Cape of Good Hope. The only day in many that the weather was fair for us to head out. We made the journey from Simon's Town to Cape Town in a good time of 9 hours.

We kept Terrwyn in Gulf Harbour Marina, Auckland New Zealand since we arrived in November 2011. After much work done to fix, add and update her we are finally ready to head off again. We spent a couple of nights in the Viaduct Marina in Auckland. It was fun to be in the middle of everything...particularly since an International Triathalon was being held in the Viaduct that weekend. Lots of people and things happening. We then headed off for Kawua Island where we spent a few days on a very secure mooring buoy thanks to the hospitatlity of the owners of Kawau Lodge, Helen and Dave Jefferies. Dinner with Lin and Larry Pardey was fun. A trip in Pickle, our inflatable dinghy, to Mansion House Bay topped it all off!
