The Cruising Life

We couldn't have timed our arrival in Rosslyn Bay yesterday any better.  Boats are arriving in the Brisbane to Kepple Tropical Race and the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron's Kepple Cruise Rally.  We've found some of our RQ friends here.  The Kepple Bay Marina does a great job hosting the party.  We're enjoyed the live music although we retired early, around 9pm, cruisers' midnight.

Today has been non-stop getting all our jobs completed before we take off in the morning. We made an early dash for the supermarket, took BR over to the fuel dock to fill our 3 tanks, topped up our 3 water tanks, etc. etc.   Daisie even got her shampoo and trim in the cockpit.  Good girl, she never complains about my lack of dog grooming skills.

I've also given the decks of Bristol Rose a good scrub and put a piece of beef and vegies in the oven.  Robert needs to run to make the 5:15pm bus into Yeppoon to pick up some wine and beer from the bottle shop.  It's been a dry ship these past couple of weeks and I fear the Captain may himself mutiny if he can't have a nice red with his dinner.

The alarm is set for 3am.  Time to get some sleep.  Ahh, the Cruising Life!
