Chartered: 11 Jan 2010

We were greeted with 30+ knot winds and a strong wind warning so decided to enjoy the restaurants in Airlie for the night. Great way to unwind with some fresh seafood then enjoy the 10 minute walk back. The next day had Tony come by to brief us on the 'Psycho Puss' and bring me up to speed after not doing much sailing in the past 5 years and the new wife having never done it at all.
Still strong winds but managed to get us to South Molle Island under his guidance. Very cool coach and gave us both the added confidence before he departed, leaving just the two of us to enjoy the islands... the honeymoon had begun!!

Waking up in the anchorage off South Molle, the bride still sleeping, I enjoyed the book and can hear the birds ashore all mixing it up before most people wake up and it starts warming up. Feeling inspired I threw the odd piece of bread up to try and get some seagulls attention when they see it and before I know it there are a dozen seagulls getting stuck in. Then, out come the fish.. heaps of them and massive fish. Pretty cool.. and then looking back at the mast, there are a dozen lorikeets perched along the boom. Almost as soon as I see them they fly straight to me, onto my head, on my arms hopping down to my hand for a peck at another piece of bread.

I love this place and its still not lunch on day one! But alas, limited text leaves it there but hopefully the photos show a bit of how much we enjoyed it.
