27 March 2012 | Murrays Beach to Bonnells Bay
Lake Macquarie is a very pretty spot but just lately I have felt that something is missing. Then I realised that it is sand!!! The lake has lawns down to the water edge & then lots of sea grass in the shallow water. There are no sandy edges for paddling & only a few areas of buoyed swimming areas. Murrays Beach has a small area of "almost" sand where we were able to take off the boots & get some grainy sand between the toes. Felt good!!!!
Set off for a fishing expedition using the hard won squid as bait. We were just about to give it away after catching just one large useless leather jacket & a big pike eel which broke off on Nick's line & Nick decided just to use up his last bait. Finally, the hunter & gatherer delivers & there is fish for dinner tonight!!
Moved back to Bonnells Bay which gave us about an hour's motor sailing & there to meet us again was duck!!
Now Wed morning & considering going back to Frying Pan Bay to be ready when we get the call from Bruce the diesel mechanic.
