Day 210, Year 2: Perfect Weather
Date: Tuesday, November 20, 2007
Weather: A Beautiful Day
Location: Bundaberg Port Marina, Australia

Today was one of those picture perfect days–blue skies with puffy white clouds, a stiff breeze, and the temperature and humidity just right. Wouldn’t it be great if you could bottle days this and release them in the middle of a cold New England winter? Unfortunately, you can’t do that, but we can hold the memory until we return here in a few months.

Work continued today. Varnishing is completed, stainless on deck is all bright and shiny, and we are ready to wax the hull. Tomorrow morning we will do a few odd jobs and then head to town to buy the last few things we need for our Thanksgiving dinner and to buy some things we need to complete our packing project. Time is slipping away quickly, but we are making good progress and should be all ready to go by Saturday. On Sunday we will figure out what else we need to do, and by early Monday morning
we are off on the train for Brisbane. We can start to feel the cool air of New England.
