Sunbirds

When we got back to the boat we noticed there have been a pair of Sunbirds busy building
a nest. Luckily they hadn't laid any eggs yet, as today when we took our sunshade down the nest
came down as well as it was attached to one of the ropes. The poor things kept coming back through

out the day trying to find where their nest has gone.

Back on board

Well it has been a while since I last wrote. We have just returned from our travel south. We
went by plane to Sydney, and rented a car to head for Nowra. Our Uncle Bob was in hospital
and being 92 we needed to get there asap. I had to wait for clearance to fly after my surgery, and
when we finally got it we were away.
We arrived on Monday 26th of March. Lucky to find Uncle Bob in good spirits and quite happy to see us! We had a wonderful day with him. We visited everyday through out the week, and on Thursday
he started to take a turn for the worst. We stayed with him all day on Friday and at 11:25 Friday night
he passed away. We are so glad we had this time with him as he got to say his goodbyes and we got to tell him how much he meant to us and how much we loved him. It has been quite an emotional time.

We have just this afternoon arrived back on board. We are so happy to be home, and look forward
to sleeping in our bed!  We will need a good nights sleep as tomorrow we start on our list of things
we would like to do to Tropical Soul. Lucky we have some really good weather to start our work.
We even have windows open and the ac is OFF!
