On Wednesday we moved Our Dreamtime into Abell Point Marina and over the next day and a half gave her a good clean above and below decks and did all the usual things marinas are good for, fill with water, dump rubbish, pick up needed odds and ends from the chandlery etc, etc. On Thursday night we went up to the The Terraces resort which Rob had installed all the floor coverings in when it was built over 30 years ago. Having a G&Ts at the bar looking out over all the boats in the bay and watching the sunset was a real blast from a previous life.
|The water quality in Abell Point Marina is excellent with soft corals thriving on the fingers and attracting plenty of good sized tropical fish. We even had nightly visits by a small pod of dolphins.|
|The reflection in the glass of the commentary box provided the ultimate selfie for a rev head as two 8,000 horsepower Top Fuel Dragsters blasted off on their way to 500 kph. (310 mph). Rob certainly had the best view point in the house.|
