Hopefully I won't bore anyone but what I want to do here is catch up a bit on the last week...show some photos and let you know what's been going on in our world! I'm going to do a series of Cruising Catch-Ups. Here's # 1 - from the lovely Port Clinton to Hexham Island.
|The beautiful, expansive Port Clinton - this boat came in late in the night. This is a morning shot as Captain G was murdering the little bug intruders.|
|Hexham Island on approach.|
The journey to Hexham Island was uneventful – very little wind so we had to motor the whole way - with the exception of the, slightly obsessed, Captain going around the boat every 10 minutes with spray and a broom trying to get every last tiny bug off his boat. I finally snapped about 5 hours into the trip and said if he waved the broom around the cockpit again I’d throw it overboard! Enough was enough!
|Lovely - and calm - little Hexham Island and it's lagoon like mooring area....on our approach not all boats are in the photo.|
Hexham Island and its anchorage was lovely but cramped. We arrived very tired after the long motor to find the small bay already full of 3 large catamarans and another yacht. The island is part of a small group of islands not far – 16 nautical miles – from the larger and more heralded Percy Islands. It’s a good stopping point for boats either on their way to the Percy’s or further toward the Whitsundays.
On to Cruising Catch Up #2.......
