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.
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?
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.
