Fanny Bay anchorage in front of the sailing club of Darwin, is big. Boats anchoring way out in the distance because of the big tides. Making going ashore a big schlep (trouble). But being considerate the club has fat wheel trolleys the boaties may use to get dinghies out of and into the low water. Very handy, we agree. On the other side of the bay two war ships and two marine supply vessels and a customs boat were on anchor. We felt safe. We liked Darwin. And it sunsets...

The Timor Sea might be in the Indian Ocean, but none of the Indian Ocean mean characteristics apply. We expected strong trade-winds, but barely got any. Flat seas lump and slither. Night time the thought of wind there was during the day, goes sleep. So do we. Sails down. Anchor light up. Mylady drifting in zig-sag circles with the tide. (Yes, it's a sea snake in the pic. There were plenty.)
