Objects in the rear view mirror ...

Thursday 12th May 2011
The anticipation was almost like that for a tooth extraction but casting off from Breakwater Marina, Sea Piper's home since December last year, went without a hitch.
Fond farewells the day before and morning of departure, then suddenly we'd broken free of the marina - all ropes and fenders accounted for - and were heading across the open water to Magnetic Island in close to ideal conditions, motor all but idling, head sail out and making six knots.
Thank you Peter for this great evening shot of our boats at Breakwater

Sea Piper anchored in Horseshoe Bay
Townsville looked magnificent in the rear view mirror with Castle Hill and Mount Stuart glowing in the morning sun. In just a couple of hours we had anchored in Horseshoe Bay at Magnetic Island, a gorgeous spot where `overnight stays' can turn into whole weeks.
