A reasonably early start this morning from Half Moon Bay, away at 6am, and with the north east behind me it was a good fast run down to Pegasus at the bottom of Stewart Island – at 1.30pm I was pulling in the sails outside of Whale Passage, the northern most entry into Pegasus. It is a beautiful coastline, and when I entered Pegasus it was even better – absolutely dramatic mountain ranges looming up behind the bush and the sea – amazing! I do feel so lucky to be able to see this part of the world which most people never get to visit. I stopped in a lovely little spot called Waterlily Bay for lunch and then headed through Pegasus Passage to the Southern Arm passing some kayakers on the way – stunning scenary. Then coming into the Southern Arm it got better still – crazy rock formations making up the mountain ranges in these parts – I'm looking forward to hopefully having a chance to explore some of them tomorrow! Then into Disappointment Cove where I have dropped anchor for the night, which is nothing like what its name suggests, although I must say I felt a wee bit disappointed that Tim was not down here. The original plan was to try to make it this far by his 40th.
