Despite two weeks of soggy, windy, dreadful weather, we have managed to ready the boat for guests and have left the Gold Coast.
Cruising can be a waiting game. You wait for the heavy rain to stop, the dangerous weather systems to pass, the contrary breeze to turn. We spent two weeks in Jervis Bay, waiting for acceptable conditions to return. What do we do when we are boat bound to keep our sanity?
Another month, another bout of severe weather with a trail of destruction turning thousands of people into climate change refugees. These are very worrying times. Is this our future?
This week as we have started heading north, we share with you some of the treasures of the southeastern waters: the spectacular seabirds and special hideaways.
