Just a brief note to say that Mike and I hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas this year and we trust that only good things come your way in 2009.
Cheshire Cat is in Bundaberg, Australia - after a relatively uneventful season in the islands of Fiji, Vanuatu and New Caledonia. The main event was an ongoing problem with our new engine exhaust. Very annoying! However all is well now - thanks to cruiser friends who helped Mike solve the problem. We had a good time in the islands seeing and experiencing the very different culture and enjoying the company of old and new friends.
Next year should see us moving north up the coast to Darwin where we plan to join the Sail Indonesia Rally - then off on another adventure on our way through Indonesia and Malaysia.
We always like to get your news, so please keep the emails coming! I WILL try to get better at replying (especially as I have a new computer this year!)
Love and Best Wishes from
Deirdre and Mike
