We had been looking forward to spending time at Port Macquarie on our way north. It is always social, with local friends there. As it turns out, with persistent northerlies, we stayed a week.
We have spent 10 days in Port Macquarie, some on a public mooring in front of town, but most of the time up the Hastings River anchored fore and aft in front of our friends Lisa and Waz’s house. Coming to Port Macquarie is like coming home: so welcoming.
After spending nearly three weeks working on Anui we finally left The Boat Works on 20 January to start our long awaited shake down cruise to Port Macquarie.
