To Brisbane

We crossed the Wide Bay Bar after a wait of a few days for the right weather. We were anchored the night before the bar crossing at Pelican Point with about 6 other boats waiting to cross. We calculated the tide to be best for the crossing at about 0900 but despite this we awoke at about 0600 to see an empty anchorage with all the other boats having already left.  We stuck to our plan however and crossed a very calm bar that looked markedly different from the washing machine we had come across a few months ago.

The Sandhills of Rainbow Beach

A long day saw us in Mooloolaba that evening and we enjoyed getting back into the surf at the local beaches and also catching up with friends in the beautiful hinterland.

From here we sailed South to Moreton Bay through a convoluted route due to sandbanks and we are now at Scarborough on the outskirts of Brisbane. We have enjoyed seeing our friends from the yacht Last Dance again here after spending some great times with them up north.

We are going to spend a bit more time here catching up with various friends and exploring the local area.
