sorry, guys…the internet here is very patchy and uploading stuff is just annoying…you may have to wait until I’ll cross to Nhulunbuy to read about the other days and to see more pics!
I’ll paddle 3-4 days down the coast now (starting Wednesday) to Jantz’s Point off Weipa, and then cut across the Gulf of Carpenteria 520 km, in 6-7 days. Weather is good, water is as flat as it can be now!
Greg installing a new switch for my electrical bilge pump on my campsite. Thanks, Captain!
The day was filled with chores. Gear repairs, cleaning, packing, checking, and stilll not knowing from where and when to cross best…the heat of the day took it’s toll, and I had to hide for a quick nap in my tent. I’m just a marine mammal already, getting overheated being dry on land…
Peter, my campsite neighbour, gave me a ride to the local supermarket and a quick tour through Bamaga, where I saw plenty of these huge termite piles! Amazing…
Peter was modelling a new locking notch on my rudder. Thanks, Peter!
It feels great to have so many helpful hands on my pit stops! Peter was cooking me a quick dinner that night in his neighbour campsite, as I haven’t eaten much being so busy…and sorry, internet updating was a bit short this time though after my gear work i was typing until 10pm and another two hours next morning before launching.
But now…I’m getting back up to date!
Thanks to everyone leaving his best wishes on this post on my announcing of the crossing!
