Back Underway - After Wonderful Trip to Perth
After a wonderful trip to Perth highlighted by the birth of our Grandson Joshua, Christmas with our daughters and their husbands and partners, Rebecca's weightlifting debut and two visits to the new Perth Stadium to see great cricket matches (if poor results) we are back in Lombok.

It is currently very dark (in the middle of the afternoon) and it is raining in Medana Bay. We are departing tomorrow morning having decided to head east (with the prevailing winds) back along the north coast of Lombok, Sumbawa and Flores to Riung and then north to Salawesi, and then north east to Raja Ampat (via Ambon) after which we will head back west through the north of Salawesi to Kalimantan, along the south of Kalimantan to Kumai (to travel up the river and see the orangutans) and then west via Belitung to Riau, then to Malaysia and Thailand later in the year (of course having left the country in August to renew our visas (yawn)). We will be looking for a place in Malysia to haul our boat out to get some minor repairs done.
Anyway that is our plan. Thanks for following us and we hope to bring you much more interesting (not tooo interesting haha) news over coming months.
