Welcome to Australia!

We have now been back in Australia for almost a week and have been busy on the boat. Our final three weeks in the US were quite busy as we journeyed around the west coast.
We went as far north as Vancouver and as far south as Los Angeles, visiting family, friends and national parks in between. We managed to hit: Seattle & Yakima, Washington; Portland, Corvallis & Eugene, Oregon; Hoover Dam & Las Vegas, Nevada; Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona; and Redwood National Park, San Francisco, San Jose, Monterey, Yosemite & Sequoia National Parks & Los Angeles, California. Thank you to everyone who was able to take time out to spend with us!

Since we have arrived we have been trying to clean out Aquabat and fix her up to be ready to go.  At times it has seemed like there is 22 years of dirt built up but overall she is in really good condition! We have yet to take her out for a sail but hopefully we will do so next week. This is what we have to look forward to when we do!
