Oh dear, doesn't time "fly" when you are having fun.
I see it is a week since we posted anything on the blog, so thought I had better do something about it.
We have covered a few miles since the last posting and left Brisbane early, (out of bed at 4am - that is still before daylight) to make the most of the fast out going tide. Sailed most of the day in lovely conditions and arrived at Mooloolaba at about 3pm. The rain set in over the weekend so we hired a car and did some touring inland, still raining there but a good day's outing. Caught up again with crew of Escape Pod and once more enjoyed very pleasant evenings with them. Particularly tasty fish dinner aboard Allusive with complements of Peter & Nicole.
We picked up Ken (Gourlay) from Maroochydore airport on Wednesday afternoon. We then drove to Southport, about a 3 hour trip as we encountered delays on the motorway. Thursday morning John & Ken left Runaway Bay on the boat, that Andrew and business friends have bought, for the delivery trip to Sydney. Good first day's run and they arrived at Coffs Harbour for the night, refuelled (thankfully the owners pay the fuel bill!!) and off this morning destination Port Stephens or Newcastle.
The dogs & I are having a quiet couple of days back on Allusive at Mooloolaba. We will get in several walks and probably catch up on some reading. I like Mooloolaba as shops and beach are close to the marina. The weather has been dry the last couple of days and the forecast is for good weather for the next 4-5 days so I will probably get in some beach walks.
