How many people get to live their dreams? I am..........!

This is my story from the time when Capt'n John and I first decided to sail around the big block, to circumnavigate this great land of ours, AUSTRALIA.

Sitting on the boat in Hamilton Marina - Wet, Wet, Wet...............!!!

Thursday 12 July 2012
Wet, Wet, Wet...............!!!
20’20.816 S – 148’56.972 E
Nearly a complete white-out as we approach the marina entrance.
Needed nav and steaming lights at 1100hr.
Sitting on the boat in Hamilton Marina but have not been ashore yet. Too bloody wet...!!!
Full foul weather gear for this trip

According to an article on the ABC Roger Stone, Professor in climatology has been quoted in saying:
“This is the last fling of a particular weather event. The rain pattern being experienced in the state's northern sugar regions is something that we have not seen in a hundred years. This is off the scale in terms of rainfall for this particular time of the year and with this type of pattern...this is right up there with the extreme levels. It is probably not over yet before it clears up quite dramatically."
So far he is right about the rain; I just hope he is going to be right about the “clearing up” bit.
