Way back in 2002 Aaron and Gretta went on a sailing adventure. This adventure started with a ten week refit of Moonstone, a 38′ ferro cement Hartley designed sloop which belonged to Aaron’s parents.¬† Money got tight pretty quickly and it wasn’t long before the couple-who’d only been together a few months-found themselves sharing one chocolate milk between them each week as a special treat.

Once the yacht was ready they departed Southport Qld and spent the next 12 months cruising the coral coast and working in the Whitsunday Islands. Aaron wrote regular e-mails to friends and family. These were so well received that when the couple embarked on another adventure Aaron kept a blog site. Harking back to their time in the the dry dock the blog was called onechocolatemilkbetweentwo. A bit of a mouthful it was written in lieu of sending postcards home while they were on a hot air ballooning winter tour of Canada and Europe in 2012/13.

Fast forward to 2016 and Aaron and Gretta have moved from their home of ten years in Canberra to the town of Moree in country NSW. Another adventure another blog site.
