That was Xmas on the River

Well what's new and old here in Sukau?
Alishan got company just the day before Xmas.
sy Barnacle C with John and Jane ( from the UK) and
sy Tonic with Doug and Margret (from NZ).
The crew of the 3 yachts had a great Xmas potluck dinner. And of course there were the Kinabatanga river prawns;-))
We also did a couple of river cruisers together with Ahmed our River Guide. Esp the early morning one was super.
Orang Utans, gibbons, birds of prey, hornbill, pita, shama, monitor lizard, owls, crocodiles, kingfishers,... just to mention a few.
Pictures will follow. ( yes Marijke is battling with the HP update...)
Since this morning we are by ourselves again but no dull moment as heavy rainfall way inland produces heaps of logs and stick in the river to keep us alert.
Looks like we will stay here the rest of the year and then head downstream again.

  1. Wat vervelend weer allemaal voor jullie, die regen dan he? Hier is alle witte rotzooi weggeregend. Ze gaven voor 1e kerstdag veel regen en ijzel, gelukkig hebben we daar heen en terug vanait Zwolle geen last van gehad. Zwolle was weer super! Tweede kerstdag bij Jacob en Leo nog meer gesmuld! Derde kerstdag met de oudjes (ja ook Ma)naar Jan Patat geweest voor een pannenkoek, ik 1,5 want Ma vond haar appelpannenkoek te zoet!? XXXX
