Serene Sandy Straits

Do you prefer serene or exciting? Would rather wait or do? Well we have been serenely waiting for more exciting things to do! This last week we have been in the Great Sandy Straits, a 70 km long waterway that separates mainland Queensland from World Heritage listed Fraser Island.

Sailing to Fraser Island

We missed it so much: feeling the wind in our sails and our speed through the ocean. Sailing to Fraser Island has been fun, even if the weather to get there has been capricious: rain, swell, strong wind… That was the downside, but even in these conditions we were in such a state of withdrawal after weeks of inactivity that we enjoyed the sailing and the freedom.
