October was one of those rare months that the Aboard Sengo newsletter was actually written and very close to completed by the end of the month. However when I went to get final permissions, I found that the file was far too big for my liking to publish online. It woud take a few hours of reducing the size of the photos in it (which means quite a few may be fuzzy), but a few hours of a hot computer on my lap was not appealing during the days when the temperatures were in the mid thirties and the humidity was high (some days recorded 100% without rain!). As a result, I started the reduction exercise at 0300 one morning – having had a broken sleep wondering about Tiger (who’d had a little adventure the previous eventing by escaping to a deserted boat yard!). Cat was retrieved safely: mum just worried about how he was coping overnight (after stressing him out by trying to get the antifoul off his paws!).
October saw us heading south from Yeppoon but we only got to the Gold Coast. The weather presented us with some lovely calm days but there were more than a few windy, wet and wild periods. Of course at the end of the month it started to ‘fine up’ just as we were about get into some hard work. Always the way. Enjoy Aboard Sengo October 2018 which is now still a hefty 10.6 meg (but better than the 16 meg it was originally).
