We’ve had an incredibly busy last 4 months since our arrival and tomorrow we start the next great adventure!
We’ll be DRIVING our Ford Everest SUV from Sydney to Perth with stops in Canberra, Melbourne (a quick flight to Tasmania!) and then on toward Adelaide and across the Great Nullarbor Plain to Esperance, Albany, through the Margaret River in into Perth. The total distance will be around 3500 MILES (5000 KM) and we expect to take around 3 weeks. For our Stateside friends, think of this as driving from Washington D.C. to Miami and then on to Los Angeles!
We’ll try and post photos and blog along the way. It should be an incredible trip.
In December we moved the boat to Sydney Harbour where Skye, Sean, Hollie, Adam, Billie, Jak and Sara met us as well as sailing friend Tony Roberts and friends Bernie Hester and Rebecca from Perth as well. All joined us to watch the start of the famous Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race and then for the Fireworks at the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Skye, Sean, Nikki and Scott even did the hike up the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
While here, we’ve also taken two long driving trips up to Brisbane and back, as well as a two week trip to all of New Zealand by air!
We’ll be doing a massive upgrade of the website when we arrive in Perth and will back post the missing blogs and photo galleries.We’ve moved the boat back up to Pittwater about 20 miles north of Sydney Harbour where she is indeed looking fabulous and yes, finally up for sale! Beach House turned 13 years old today!
Hugs to all and feel free to drop us a note anytime.
