Well after seeing the crocodile last night as we arrived we were treated to a wonderful sunset and moon rise behind \”The Thumb\” on Hinchinbrook Island. This morning, we used my sextant with it\’s heavy dark filters and watched \”live\” the transit of Venus across the sun in crystal clear, cloudless skies. It lasted about 6 plus hours. We felt much like Captain Cook when he was sent to Tahiti to witness the same event which happens in pairs about every 110 years! The weather is nice, the area very picturesque. Our shortest day today, only 34 miles. One day boat here and the resort is closed due to extensive damage from Cyclone Yasi 16 months ago. KIT, Scott and Nikki
