Platypus Bay

Tuesday 3rd, we mosied quietly up through the Great Sandy Straits, letting the tide and spinnaker do the work. The smell of crabs cooking.

Then on up alongside Fraser Island to Platypus Bay, which is the western side of north FraserIsland, with a gentle off land wind, making it a peaceful anchorage. We went ashore for a long walk on the unspoilt beach. A lovely evening.

In the morning, a fog, lifting as the sun came up.

Could we find the crab pots? We did, with 8 crabs, five of them legal!

Now off to Burnett Heads, near Bundaberg.
