We’re in Mooloolaba, a sweet beach town on the sunshine coast of Queensland.
Heading north from the protected waters of Moreton Bay, we wove through sand shoals to come into the Mooloolah river. Humpback whales, dolphins, and one very large turtle. Beautiful company on a beautiful day! We timed the 50-odd mile trip to arrive in Mooloolaba a little before high tide, not knowing what the bar would bring. We would have liked more wind for sailing, but it surely helped with the docile bar conditions, and for that we’re grateful!
Most of our time is taken in continued boat projects and preparations to depart Australia, but there’s always time to spend a few hours on a pretty beach.
