Only 4500 nautical miles & 36 days @ sea
...from icebergs in the Southern Ocean
to great white sharks in the Indian Ocean
and kangaroos on the beach.
It sure feels good to be on land, even if only
for a few days to arrange for fuel and food,
because Kangaroo Island is NOT my final
destination, only a great place to pull into
after the long trip from Antarctica.
I'm headed to 22'S 14.36'E
Can you guess where I'm going?
hint: world's largest ______________.
OK - another 4 days with no wind in my sails,
but the coastal cruise was a great way to
check out the wildlife with my binoculars
- crocodiles, water monitors, some awesome
red birds called adelaids and koalas.
Now I am finally where I want to be,
a group of Islands called the Whitsundays.
They are all that remains of a coastal range
which was submerged when sea levels
rose at the end of the ice age.
There are lots of other boats around,
lots of people sharing dive stories,
great lobster dinners and music in the cockpit.
I think I'll move here - just kidding - well maybe someday.
See ya soon, Cody
P.S. have you guessed where I'm at?
