Days 13-14 - Chilling

Wow this PredictWind Tracker has us doing some pretty mad things! It doesn't like it when we sit still and so seems to make up positions.

We then moved to a mooring at Shelley Beach, Orford. Today we spent the morning ashore which was nice though not a lot was happening in Orford. Scallop pie and chips for lunch though! Our intrepid trolley came in handy again.

We tried a spot of fishing today but failed miserably. So I went in with the snorkel and mask to check out what the problem was. Note to self - 18 degC is bloody freezing even in a wet suit!

We developed a few engine issues yesterday, but checked back with our mechanic in Sydney today and he seems to think it's a minor issue so shouldn't be a problem.
