It was great to have Shannon along also in Darwin at the time to attend with us.

Fishing Trips

We've done a few fishing trips in the boat.   During the school holidays we planned a big trip of a few days over to the Tiwi Islands but we had a few technical issues just leaving Darwin so we just overnighted near Charles Point and came back the next day.   The autopilot wasn't working, the toilet broke down and then we had saltwater pumping into the bilge from a broken hose on the cooling system!
The first trip therefore wasn't a great success in getting my wife and son keen to do trips on the boat!   We did do a couple of overnight trips in Darwin Harbour (see photo) which were much more pleasant.  A trip to Sail City wasn't so great with Gwenny, Daniel and his friend Rowan.  We tried to go too far on limited time and spent all our time travelling!  Combined with the fact that I didn't seek out a sheltered anchorage and we were tossed about all night when trying to sleep.
 The best trip was with Peter and Nikki and the kids (Shania brought a school friend too) for a couple of nights into Bynoe Harbour.  Was really nice except I wish I turned on the airconditioner earlier!   Didn't sleep much because it was so hot and found out how well the aircon worked at around 5am on the last morning we were out!

Coomalie Creek Church Camp 2012

Was a good time although the kids were a bit slack and didn't go with Paul and Gwenny.  We camped in our tent near the water and it was beautiful listening to the water all night whilst sleeping.

One memorable part was Paul taking Naree and Isaac Possingham to the clinic at Batchelor to get a fishing hook removed from Isaac's thumb!

Bought a boat!

I have bought a 35' (11m) boat called Condamine and we (Cousin Peter and Brother-in-law Rob and I) are going to motor her from Gove to Darwin.   Check out to view information about the boat and the trip.
