101 Miles To Eden
31 December 2010
A brief progress report: 101.7 nautical miles to go, to the waypoint off Eden, and from there, heading inshore, another 10.
Doing around 7 knots, wind slowly strengthening. Wind now 18 - 20 knots from the NNE, and more is promised by the weatherman.
We are passing Ulladulla, and sailing along very nicely. As I said, a southerly change is predicted tomorrow, and we hope to be in the gardens of Eden by the time it hits.
Nick has to leave us there, because he has 2 cats back home. He has enjoyed himself! He has been a tremendous help to us in Sydney, hauling us around shopping, cooking meals, helping on board. keeping our dinghy on the back of his truck, because we could not leave it on the beach.
Endra will arrive in Eden in the wee hours of January 3rd, the day after my birthday. A special birthday. The biblical span of threescore years and ten - from now on, it is pure gift.
