Waiting waiting

02 June 2012 | Bribie Island
Cold & wet
The rainy weather has continued all week here as it has for many areas. What happened to sunny Queensland??
It is now Sunday 3rd June & we have spent the week alternately going ashore for walks between showers, reading & watching movies. Have had the company of Chris & Kevin 'Blue Lagoon' as they are also waiting to move north.
We had an enjoyable lunch at Bribie RSL with them on Thursday. We went by dinghy through the sloppy sea & just as we arrived at the jetty, after a 10 minute trip, I realised that I had no shoes. Good ol' Nick, without a complaint, went back to the mother ship to collect them. Gave me an opportunity to stand on the jetty with my back to the wind to dry out the seat of my pants!!
We collected the replacement cables from the Post Office too.
In between showers, Nick dug some good sized yabbies & managed to snare two nice snapper, fishing from the comfort of the cockpit.
On one of our walks, we headed towards Sandstone Point (on the mainland) & discovered what must be a well kept secret. This is a very attractive beach-side suburb with a grassy foreshore & sandy beach; another place to put in the "We could live here " file. We walked across the Bribie bridge in strong, cold winds.
We have harvested lots of rain water to replenish tanks & right now, Nick is planning our trip for a departure tomorrow about midday. All we need is some co-operation from Hughie & we will be off.

Suffice to say we're a couple of ageing dreamers who simply decided that we didn't want to join our ancestors before we'd had a damn good shot at fulfilling at least some of the dreams first. [...]
