A huge thanks to Mel & Simon who gave us some vouchers for a Sunset Sail with Escapade Ecotours for our tenth wedding anniversary. We took the cruise on the 16th and the weather could not have been better. According to the BOM we had approx 9knots ESE and the ocean was about as close to billiard table flat as an ocean gets I think.

We left the fishing boat harbour, sailed up the inner harbour for a little while then spent the remainder of the time out on the ocean as the sun slowly set. It was awesome, about the best afternoon out we’ve had in a long time. It was so relaxing sitting on the deck or laying on the trampoline as the cat gently rose and fell with the water bubbling at the bows. The crew served some tasty nibbles and softies were on the house. As you can see we had fun with the camera, being silly and trying to get some arty shots. Once the sun set we made our way back to the harbour and followed up our voyage with fish and chips from Cicerello’s. What a perfect end to the week.

Now we’ve just got to figure out how to make enough dosh so we can afford to do this sort of thing every day! All donations gratefully accepted.

For those that are interested, the Cat is a Seawind 1200 and has to be seen to be believed. I get that 12m is big, but even compared to our little Windrush 14 this thing is a tardis. Luxurious too. The cabin, living and entertaining spaces are huge and really well appointed. So the big question is do we have another 8 friends or family willing to share the $1900 required to secure this beauty for a day trip to Rotto next season? Because I can’t wait to go again.
