We filled and emptied the tanks today. Jan also put on a load of washing prior to us moving to attend to the tanks. This further assisted in lowering the potable water tank and raising the bow. First we filled the diesel tanks to drop the stern even lower. The next task was the emptying of the toilet tank in the stern. Phil made the comment “You must have a big tank!” and he is right. We then reversed the 250 yards back onto our original mooring where we are once again connected to the energy umbilical cord (240v shoreline). I then filled the water tank. Back inside Waiouru Jan attended to the online banking and other administrative matters. Boring old life at the moment.
The reason for starting this blog was to keep a record of our cruising so we could provide evidence to CRT of our compliance with the terms of our boat licence (ie, continuous cruisers). Along the way it became a habit to write a daily post of our travels and we seem to have collected a few readers. The latter is something I hadn’t anticipated. Knowing you are there has probably kept me disciplined into producing a daily post
Now our second winter afloat has arrived. This time we have arranged a mooring for the next three months. Life is mundane and boring; it seems rather pointless to attempt to produce a daily blog about a cruise that isn’t happening. Consequentially for the next few months there will only be posts when something of interest has occurred.
Thanks for taking the time to read my daily ramblings and a special thank you to those readers who have left comments.
Normal service will resume at some future date!
