Hello Amazing Peeps,
My apologies for being so quiet. We have been working and having a tonne of fun on the boat.
We have finally got to repairing the Genoa. It’s a mammoth of a sail, it has just taken us forever. The plan is for it to be fully fixed by the end of the weekend and ready to put up again. We are just using a Brother sewing machine from Big W and it’s still holding together, it’s just got to do a little more. What a trooper!
Our mainsail also has needed a few patches so we have been doing that as well. The mainsail also has no telltales, so we have been making some with spare dacron and double sided tape.
So far, works a treat. It’s been fun too.
We have met more wonderful people here in Eden. We are starting to be recognised down the street as the family off the boat – which is pretty cool. The kids have been given an Australian Salmon from a fishing boat here named Marauder. The owners Rodger and Julie are fantastic.
The muscle farm boat Maree Eva has also given the kids 2 bags of muscles. The kids LOVE muscles – who knew. It does 1 big dinner with rice and spices and leaves just enough for Mum and Dad to have a few fried ones for breakfast the next morning – SO YUM!
I think we have all gotten a little bit crazier since being here, but the good kind. We are always making each other laugh. It is awesome when we can laugh, really laugh as a family. It has definitely changed things for us for the better. I’m looking forward to more positive change.
That’s it for now. Love you all crazily and have a fantastically wonderful day.
