We've been back aboard for a couple of weeks now after a holiday in Perth.
This week we finally had some real wet weather. The monsoon trough moved over Darwin and a low pressure system developed nearby. We watched it move over the top of Darwin on the BoM radar. We had over 200mm of rain in 24 hours. Cool! (literally). Winds got up to about 40knots in the marina but that just helped cool us all down more.
The rain and wind continued on Australia Day, although moderating quickly during the day. We spent the evening at Dinah Beach Cruising Yacht Association where the Darwin City Brass Band put on a great show.
