Ehh, well it is still getting cooler (or should I say colder).
A sign: Wakame likes to sleep (with us) under the blankets these days. What a change from this time last year when we were traveling the Kinabatanga River in Borneo.
In the mornings we wake up to the sound of the generator: Making AC for the hot water kettle, the boiler, the toaster and ....the heather.
Of course in the meantime recharging cameras, computers and boat batteries.
And we run the air-cooled fridge to warm the aft cabin! So far the day-time temp is still above 10C, so it is not yet too bad. Yesterday we even had a top of 19C & little wind making it very comfy to sit in the cockpit.
BTW, for our daily shower/bath we have the option to go to the gym, the biggg sento ( public bath) or our friend's house.
Alishan has found her official spot here in the harbor and, as said; We are Digging In.
Sundays of course helping out at the Morning Fish market: 5 AM
Daily we meet up with friends from the past, go for runs ( yes i've signed up for a marathon in January), read books, go birding and do the odd boat jobs.
Up till now, we have found the skill to avoid paid-jobs ;-)
It's good to be here.
Good friends Jon and Pam of sailing yacht Tweed have re-surfaced from their trip to Australia, and so .....we are "flat out".
They are in ODO city marina, 10 minutes by Giant bicycle from here. Also there is Anton, from South Africa, on board of sailing yacht Sea Rover.
Luckily, we feel we are still in a cruising-mode.
