No privacy for Whales here

Urangan claims to be the whale watching capital of Australia I they could be correct. Every day tour boats are going back and forth packed with people whale watching.
As we are at a marina we spent a good part of yesterday cleaning the boat and it's good to be rid of the dust and other rubbish that had accumulated during the 2 months at Bundaberg. We will be leaving here today about midday and go to an anchorage on the west side of Fraser Island and from there will move down toward the Wide Bay Bar and await the required tide and weather conditions to cross. Last night a SW change came through and although the weather is clear and sunny it has dropped the temperature a few degrees. From what I can see on the weather charts on the NSW coast I am glad we are not there at the moment as they are having some very unseasonable cold and windy weather.
