Welcome to the Maunie of Ardwall blog

This is the blog of Maunie of Ardwall charting our adventures as we sail around the world. We're sailing up and down the east coast of Australia after a summer back in Britain.

Some photos from Faluga

We have a little credit left in our July satellite phone account so we thought we'd post some small photos from the past couple of weeks in Falugu.
So, above, we have:
1. Our hosts, Meli, Jiko, Jona and Jima in their Sunday best
2. Jima making eyes at us in church
3. An amazingly tame Kingfisher
4. Meli at work – he's one of the best carvers on the island
5. The view over our anchorage
We have a busy day ahead of us. This afternoon we are going into the school to give a lesson! Amongst other topics we'll tell them about making yogurt – Graham has a video on his laptop showing the production process at Yeo Valley's Blagdon dairy and we've made some apricot yogurt for the children to taste. After that there's a big fundraising party organised by the women of the village who have been rehearsing dances and songs for the past few days; judging by the laughter we've heard coming from their rehearsals, it should be very entertaining.
