Dusky Dolphin’s first “Faraday Cage”

Last night we were anchored in Dusky Dolphin in an extremely rough and rolly anchorage, Green Head just north of Jurien Bay. As there were threatening thunder clouds around (Why do we do this? !!!) we put the vital pieces of equipment into a supposedly lightening-proof “cage” – the oven! So there was a good reason for the spare GPS and my mobile and my MacBook to be in the boat oven:-)

Today we sailed south again back to Jurien Bay Marina, and gave up plans to ever sail north along our coast. What with this plus my badly burnt fingers from a particularly big wave knocking over the candle light and me trying to catch it, plus our previous bad experiences here, we decided it’s time to make different plans for our sailing!
