We went exploring the national park walks, through to the other side of the Island: Turtle Bay looking out to Carlisle Island. We got the surprise of our lives to look up from trudging in the sand, to see this huge Kangaroo. He seemed reluctant to move from his position. We followed him down the track.
Back at Mackay marina to avoid the blustery southerly weather approaching. The usual round of laundry and reprovisioning. Last time we were here we socialized with lots of friends. This time is so different. The skies are threatening thunderstorms, and the rich and famous have come in as well. This mega yacht is Sarissa: 139 feet long with 6 crew but apparently it is so sophisticated that it can be sailed by one crew. It was built for a family. Worth a look on the internet.
Sarissa Super Yacht. Note that surfboards and SUP's carried on deck just like us!
Crew busy even at night.
Too long for the finger.
A feeling of the end of the season for us.
So onward and southward when the winds settle.
