First Day At Anchor & Harassed By Bullies 🐂
5 months ago, we limped into Marsden Cove Marina with a battered and bruised CURIOSITY. Taking the old phrase “a boat is a hole in the water that you throw money into”, to a new literal level.
Sure, we had a lot of work with this refit, but we never anticipated such a long stay (rookie mistake). We thought we’ll be cruising again by September. But #BoatLife. Nothing ever goes to plan, much less to schedule or budget. Add in COVID lockdowns, shipping delays and we were beyond just waylaid. Even the baked-on barnacles hiding out in the thru-hulls were starting to grow roots.
But today, we finally make our way back out into the world and spend our first day on anchor. The idea was to slowly ease back into life on the hook with a casual day of exploring a new bay. All was going well until we unwittingly attracted too much attention with our cameras.
Sure, it could have happened anywhere in the world, but somehow, the whole altercation felt very New Zealand.
