The year in photos (well sort of)
The past year has seen us do quite a bit of kayaking while Elenya has stayed put (the year's big journey was about 300 m to the dry dock and back!). Tori has been busy sailing on other boats (including on a yacht taking a group of Ham radio operators to Chesterfield Reef- part of New Caledonia and about half way between there and Australia) and Jim has been busy with work. Occasionally we even get to see each other! The year started and ended with us kayaking in Murchison and we did two overnight trips this year: the Landsborough with raft support and an unsupported trip on the Upper Waiau.

Yes we're still alive! We've been doing a lot of kayaking interspersed with the odd sub-antarctic trip for me and the odd work trip for Jim.

The last few months in photos
The view from the yacht in one of the four berths we've been in recently. Spent some time this weekend cleaning off the overspray from the dry dock -one of the hazards of being in a commercial port. At the moment the "World" is tied up near us on No. 7 wharf.
We looked after a kitten for a week. A friend had nearly run it over and needed someone to look after him while she was away prior to finding him a home. We very nearly kept him!

We had a trip to the UK in Sept/Oct. Mainly to catch up with Jim's family but we did manage to do some touristy stuff and hired a narrow boat on the Thames for a week.
