We’re Off North

Caitlin, Bryan and I went to the Spiegeltent to see Karin Schaupp and Katie Noonan(fabulous Melbourne duo , classical guitar and voice)  and generally fluffed around , whilst on the free MAST berth at Constitution Dock for the weekend. . It was hot and Mures ice creams were lovely. We took off Sunday night back to Prince of Wales Bay for  much needed showers and to ready the boat for the trip home.

The wind seems to abandon us when we want to sail then sneak up during the night. We lurched across Storm Bay in a sizeable swell and 6 knots of wind at different angles. Barb was having nightmare recollections of the trip from Strahan to Recherché on Summerwind and feeling gross while I tried to teach myself double knitting and needed to munch on crystallised ginger. It is predicted to  reach 20 kts tonight from the NE so we are anchored in Stinking Bay at the NE Corner of Port Arthur. It is not stinking and in fact is lovely with a white beach. Tomorrow, we’re off to check out Port Arthur. 

Morning drizzle and birdsong in Stinking Bay.
