BRAVO! PAM....thank you for sending us these absolutely amazing rare photos which you cleverly snapped at 6.30am last Friday, from your boat anchored in Tranquil Bay, Nidri.
Appreciating the peaceful ambiance of 'One Tree Bay' and 'Bungalow Bay'...extremely quiet, nobody, except a few 'yachties' stretching their legs! The season has not yet started here.....as you can see!
A SUNSAIL flotilla did come in for their end of charter BBQ....but they were very discreet.
Check out the camping car below....a big high 4 wheel drive.....they had the 'beach' to themselves....even had solar panels and a TV antenna!! Zen!
Yet again, more heartbreaking tragic news .....our thoughts today are for the parents and young fans in Manchester affected by last night's 'sickening' terrorist attack...
As planned, we are moving around the local anchorages until end June...in order to be readily and rapidly available to show 'Pacific Pearl' if a prospective buyer appears on the horizon!
There has been a little more interest by e mail, plus a few visits...BUT unfortunately no 'serious' offers.
Definitely becoming busier in the area....more and more boats around every day.
We actually had our first 'swim' of the season on the 15th May...a very quick 'in and out' as only 19.5 degrees...in super calm conditions.
Dear Canadian friends, Barb and Con, 'BIGSKY' have recently launched and kindly came down to find us....wonderful to catch up and hear all about their winter adventures in Canada, Panama City, Poland, Holland, Curacao....busy people! see slideshow below....
The huge 63ft 'Spirit of Gaia' entered our bay last week with the owner/designer/builder onboard..well into his 80's...see photos..
James Wharran is an amazing man who built Polynesian style catas...his book 'Two Girls, Two Catamarans' relates the story of his previous two boats in which he sailed around the world with always a female crew...fascinating reading, as begins in the early '50's.
Thank you Pam and Roger for sharing the above with us.
