Day 6 - Huskisson and another Blow

Things almost went to plan today! We motored across to Huskisson and picked up a mooring, then went ashore in the dinghy with our foldable trolley. Debi picked up a few provisions whist I went and got 40 litres of diesel to top up the tanks. In the meantime the weather had got up a bit and so we had a few dramas trying to get back to the boat. The main issue was trying to launch off the beach with a dinghy full of stuff. Debi managed to fall over the side and then a wave broke over the dinghy and filled it and our shopping with water! At that point a kind local swimmer came and gave us a hand and we successfully got away. A few more lessons learnt. The weather continued to build to 25 knots of wind and so we decided to book Ash into a hotel for the night whilst Debi and I sit out here on a mooring riding out the storm. It's subsiding now and so we should be ok to pick him and his hangover  up in the morning! Hey ho all good fun!
