Our dawdle to new territory for us, from the Whitsundays to Magnetic Island, is the start of new adventures.
Anchor winch problems delay our departure for Far North Queensland by two days, but allow us to catch up with our friends on Storm Boy!
After a week of hiding at the top end of the Whitsundays, we had four days of calm conditions, perfect for the outer reef and its crystal clear waters. We started at Bait Reef where we spent three days, then moved to Hook Reef.
We are in catch up mode, having spent days hidden at the Northern end of the Whitsundays out of internet service. So here is what we were up to last week. It is supposed to be the tropical dry season, but we had a week of rain and strong wind! We spent a few days…
We are still in the Whitsundays. Our friend Sue has arrived and we are having fun in the islands while waiting for bits and pieces for Anui.
Yachties often say you don’t want friends or family to stay on board too long. But we feel differently about that; we had Wade’s cousins Grant and Deb with us for 3 days, and it just was not enough. Great sailing, snorkeling, sightseeing, feasting were had!
Ah the lure of the Outer Reef! Three days at Hook Reef and Bait Reef filled with underwater beauty.
