We've had a very pleasant day here at Record Bay. The day started out quite chilly at about 18C with a moderate SE breeze adding "wind chill". The sky was completely overcast which made it feel quite cold, demonstrating we have adapted fully to the tropics! We've seen dugong (we think) and dolphin in the water, and a variety of birds on the beach. By mid-afternoon the sky was clearing to scattered cirrus clouds and the breeze had dropped so we ventured ashore.

Last night we watched the partial lunar eclipse. We weren't expecting it but it was fun to watch. We'd been hearing a lot about the transit of Venus on the radio but not an eclipse. Having seen it we looked it up in the Nautical Almanac. We'll have to read this useful publication more closely in future.
