There is something about Bittangabee that is really appealing: peaceful, 100% protection from any wind of any strength right up in the creek, nice walks. Not many yachties come here. They favour Eden, 9 miles north. But if you like little nooks and have a shallow draft, this is a winner of an anchorage.
This time, since we were only going to be here for two nights, we anchored in front of the storehouse ruin at the entrance of the inlet, and did not go right up the creek, around the corner. In days gone by, the storehouse was where supplies were brought from Eden and kept for the nearby Green Cape Lighthouse. Nowadays it is just a ruin, but a handy landmark. You meander your way into the inlet and its rocky shores, and throw the pick in front of it.
A southerly change and storm were forecast on the evening we got there. The light was eerie, the clouds ominous, but we were tucked in and all was peaceful in our little anchorage. The next day was calm but grey and a little soggy so we stayed on board, resting before the last big push home.
Here are a few images of our favourite hideaway.
