Martin wrote me and said that while on the hike, they saw lizards as big as 4 feet long. Some were guarding their nests and seemed to be more like Monitor lizards than iguanas.

One of the fun things about David and Sue is that we played LOTS of trivia games while on AMARA last year. It was no surprise that this group came in second in the challenge! It looks like fun and makes me sad that I'm not with Martin to enjoy the good times on AMARA.
This is what happens when someone yells, "Cell coverage!" Everything is dropped, cell phones come out, texts are sent, Facebook updates posted and Skype calls are made. But just as fast as it comes, it fades away. Then back to sailing AND fishing...

Mountains of sashimi. Yum!

AMARA is now headed to Flinders Island, about 80 miles northwest of Lizard Island. Flinders Island is known for it's interesting Aboriginal petroglyphs.
I'll post some photos as they come my way.
