Introducing Iolanthe’s newest crew addition Sammy.
Arriving early with some drama he has been a brilliant surprise Christmas present! We are stoked and absolutely besotted.
He is also the reason why we have been a bit quiet of late, lots of boat projects waiting to start , lots of ideas and plans for this year but for the time being we are taking it all one moment at a time and enjoying the joys of a new bub.
After a very wet August, Spring has finally arrived here in Sydney!
A week of high and lows
East Coast lows that is….
A weather phenomenon – The NSW equivalent of mini cyclone, one of the most famous East Coast lows did this….
Which was enough to keep Iolanthe marina bound 😦
And the High?
Not only did we bake, but this was our first time baking onboard with our new Omnia Stovetop Oven.
We baked Chocolate Brownies using Carolyn’s recipe and indeed the inspiration for the Omnia Stovetop Oven also came from the great reviews and recommendation on her site The Boat Galley. For our first try the results were very acceptable. We will keep practising, maybe bread next.
(For those who noticed yes we were using a saucepan as a mixing bowl. The mixing bowl was ‘borrowed’ by the skipper to catch drips from a leak in the anchor locker 😦 )
Lazy days sailing on Pittwater………. The new wind instrument and AIS have been installed. Fridge fixed ( again).
Relaxing in Broken Bay Iolanthe style.
Corn Chips, Craig’s Gucamole, Rum, ducks.
