Merry Christmas, Tasha!
At 4.00am TC Tasha came directly over us with winds gusting 60 knts. Fortunately, although we are moored not 25 metres from a coral bommie, we are on a brand new mooring with rope so thick we have had to lash it to our cleats. Dreamagic bounced about a good deal but stayed put.
Actually I didn't realise that it was a cyclone until this morning when we picked up the weather forecasts. The good news is that she appears to have passed and although it is very grey over the mainland, there is a beautiful sunrise coming. Perhaps she has done a bit of housekeeping and swept away the predicted two more days of rain. Let's hope so!
We are now about to start the traditional Dreamagic Christmas celebrations. It's hard to realise that this is my third Christmas on the boat. So far this has been the most exciting start!
Merry Christmas to everyone. I hope your day is filled with A'penis as Capt'n Willi would say.
