A Tale of a Whale

We left Tangalooma at about 9am yesterday morning in a strong breeze. Decided two reefs were called for and it turned out to be a good decision as we still managed to average 6knots without even putting our headsail up. 

The highlight of the trip was a whale which half breached within 200m of us. Sadly no-one got a photo but it was a great thing for us all to remember. 

We saw several other whales but those were mostly further away. It is definitely whale-spotting season here!

We motored into Mooloolaba marina without any trouble just before high tide at about 4pm and have tied up in the marina.  Those very welcome showers were great!

Jonny and Alice will be leaving us tomorrow but we will be here for 3 weeks to get the boat surveyed for insurance purposes and because we will be returning home for 11 days to attend to a few things. Certainly not a bad place for a rest!
