As you can see we are still at Rebak Marina. The work is progressing slowly on the hatch fibre glassing. They have been grinding and epoxy-ing and there is tiny fibreglass grit everywhere, even in bed. So you are constantly scratching the prickles.
Entertainment wise we have been doing rather well with a birthday celebration on the hardstand for Clayton off "The Silent Knight". Clayton and Berniece have been travelling on their boat for 15years ( that's from Australia to here) We figure they are not in a hurry. We have had two more buffet dinners since the last blog entry. One even managed to coincide with my birthday, which I was trying to keep quiet, so 30 of us had a great night with yummy food and great live music. Even Mike and I got up and danced, of course all pictures have been confiscated and destroyed. The restaurant management presented me with a bottle of wine (Australian even) and a birthday greetings letter signed by the staff, which was terrific.
We celebrated St Patrick's Day with morning tea and green sponge cream roll. Looks weird but tastes yummy. The green colour comes from the pandan leaves.
We have got to know a few more people of a few more boats. We are planning to put up a rogues gallery of the people we have met so when we talk about them you can see who they are.
The Court Jesters, with Sue and Wayne, have arrived back. We haven't seen them since December when they went home for a month. They then headed off to the Andaman Islands about 3 days sail from Phuket. The islands belong to India so lots of red tape and you have to report in all the time so they know where you are.
So it was drinkies on Seadrive last night with Jesters, Bruce from Muscat (Alison is back in OZ for a visit) , Martha and Brice from Silver Fern, Neil and Lee from Crystal Blues.
