Arrived at Lord Howe Island

Hello From Lord Howe Island.

Well we motored in through the lagoon this morning at 7.30am after arriving too late to come in in daylight last night so we ended up sailing around outside with thunderstorms all around us. It made for an interesting night I can tell you. We were putting in and taking out reefs in the main sail all night long. So the trip took us four days plus the extra night outside.

We are happy to be tied up to a mooring buoy even if te seas are making for a good swell coming in over the reef.

We had a really good sail yesterday till about 5.30pm when the weather and seas changed.

We are just putting the tender into the water to go ashore to see what is available. We need to take on water and fuel, but we would like to look around as well.

So will away for today and will keep you posted as to when we will be leaving.

Tons of love

Ann and Alec
