The South Westerlies have returned with a vengeance, which normally would mean it is time for another big downwind run. But they are particularly mean this time! We had Port Macquarie in our sights for the weekend, but it will take a bit longer!
Starting our full-time cruising life as the whales were migrating from Antarctica to the East Coast of Australia was such a highlight that we decided to put together a Photobook about it.
There is something about the waters around Port Stephens that is so appealing! We left Broughton earlier this week, headed for Swansea, at the head of Lake Macquarie. What a treat of aerial acrobatics by gannets and whales alike! So we could not resist showing you the delights of our passage.
When it comes to whale watching, we have hit the jackpot. Every single day we have seen several, sometimes at a distance, but at times we have had close encounters. We will never tire of seeing these magnificent creatures.
