Seppeltsfield Winery

Back in 2014 I toured Half Moon Bay with the Get Reading team and I had the pleasure of speaking at a high tea in the Seppeltsfield Winery. I promised Graham I’d take him back one day as it is a beautiful winery with a rich history. While we were in Adelaide for the RWA Continue reading

Power Struggles

Living on Roobinesque and being self-contained means we rely firstly on solar power, then on wind power and if all else fails we have a diesel generator. Any time our engines are running they also charge our battery bank. The solar panels are true champions, quietly going about their business, never demanding anything but an Continue reading

I’m being sociable!

After a wicked week at work, feeling like Chicken Little and wondering if the sky was really going to fall in, I’ve hit the weekend and collapsed in a heap. What better way to recover than to throw off the mooring lines and head to the bay. I’ve also fitted in a visit to Rowena Continue reading

The Dedication for Safe Harbour

‘For Dolly, who, in the briefest of meetings, taught me the importance of being still.’ (SAFE HARBOUR 2014) It’s not often you meet someone briefly who has a profound effect on you. I met Dolly on a fishing trip out of Darwin a few years ago.  Capt G and I were heading out with a Continue reading
