We are filling in a few days at Southport Yacht Club as this high pressure ridge makes sailing further north an unhappy option and as we also have to wait for our new computer battery to arrive.
Southport’s a great place to wait. Plenty to see and do, good provisioning and comfortable. We’re happy to be here.
On our first night here I spied no less than seven blondes wearing various versions of leopard skin outfits whilst dining in the yacht club. I jumped to conclusions and dismissed the Gold Coast as a ‘fashionista’ port.
Yesterday we pumped the dinghy up, only to discover a small tear which required repair. So it wasn’t until today we headed out by dinghy for a short adventure, here’s some pictures…
Of course where there are boats, there are birds. Check out this cormorant “Investigating” the bird scare device!
We are heading off tomorrow to thread our way up through the channels towards Manly Boat Harbour. We expect to take a few days, just wandering about slowly.
