Time Flies...

And so it is already a few days into the New Year!
Indeed we had a great start! On Dec 30 Alishan moved to Patong Bay but when we turned the corner we saw the enormous swell rock-and-rolling the boats around. So instead of dropping the anchor just in front of the "famous" beach, we headed for the NW corner of the bay AND had a great viewing point of Patong skyline. It was really something to see all those fireworks and the thousands and thousands "candle" balloons drifting into the sky. Friends Michael and Em from sy Sound of Music joined us with the countdown.
The next days we sailed back to Nai Harn Bay. There was still an enormous swell running, good fun for the surfers and/but the nice thing about this bay is that there is a safe (= no swell) place to land the dinghy to go ashore. sy Lady Ann showed up yesterday, so..: Marijke and Kari took of this morning with their cameras, while Aslaugh and Jaap made it to the top of the hill on running shoes.
Cruising is Fun.
And how did your New Year start?
Salute for now.
