Back at Monty’s

Current Sunshine is now back at Monty’s – I need somewhere to keep her while I go to Vietnam for a couple of weeks. Steve and Miki will move aboard to keep her company while I’m away. Luckily Noggy has a mooring available here for the next month that I can use. Isn’t it great how the universe provides for me…

After leaving Myora anchorage at Straddie, I went to Bribie Island – I was too late to catch the tide for entering the Caboolture river. And yesterday we had a great sail across Deception Bay. The wind being really light – even calm – the crew decided to swim.  And then 15 minutes later we had a shark cruise past us, and then we spotted another very white one just as at the entrance to Caboolture River.

Before leaving Myora I did manage to get a picture of one of the elusive turtles,

He only stays on the surface for a moment to suck in a lungful...

 

and one of a sea eagle that was playing in the wind eddies around the boat…

Aboriginal Tours

There’s some interesting stuff happening here at Dunwich…  If you’re interested in doing a cultural tour of Straddie click here to check out their website. I’ve met Brendon and his mum Denise who’ve started up this business and they’ll look after you.

Dugongs and Turtles

Lots of Dugong and Turtles popping their heads up to bid me hello today. The wind was really light to begin with – just a zephyr – it made it easy to hear the sea creatures pop up and catch a breath of air.  They’re too quick though to get a photo of them.

Thanks to Steve and Miki who leant me their camera and here’s a couple of photos to be going on with…

Current Sunshine in Deanbilla Bay

And a heron checking out the solar panels…

Some kind of heron I think.
