Once again we are waiting for the weather!  Our cruise in the Marlborough Sounds is nearly at an end. There is a mooring waiting for Emma Louise in Akaroa where she will spend the southern winter whilst we spend the same time in the UK.  It’s 200Nm to the Banks Peninsula, where Akaroa is, and we need about 40 hours of good weather to get there.  Autumn is well and truly established, there was a storm last Tuesday and a gale is forecast for Monday so we are being patient and waiting for a suitable gap.  In the meantime we are doing some work to prepare EL for seven months at a mooring.  Please see April for further details.

Here’s a shot of EL in our current anchorage…

I need some help with the last one.  If you know your birds then please have a look at the slideshow and see if you can identify any of them.  Thanks!

I’ve also updated the site to make it mobile friendly.  It seems to work OK on an Android phone and an iPad.   Let me know if you have any problems by posting a comment below.
