Burnett River

Grabbed a final take-away coffee (and cake) and departed Round Hill Creek just after high tide. We were hoping to catch a bit of easterly breeze in the afternoon, rather than the morning SE.

The winds didn't really cooperate as much as we would have liked, but we had a reasonable motor sail, averaging 7 knots, to Burnett Heads. In fact, our arrival coincided with the much anticipated NE breeze. Anchored near the Sugar Terminal just as the sun disappeared.

In the morning, we moved further up the Burnett River and anchored behind our good friends John and Jan from Karinya. We often consider them our benchmark, as they are octogenarians and still out there living the dream. Enjoyed a long chat over tea and the best carrot cake I've ever had.

Poor Tony had to pull the toilet part again, as it was sounding very dodgy. He finally reached that point where it was time to buy a new macerator, rather than try for another repair. That decided, we had John and Jan over for sundowners and replaced the tea with a well deserved wine!
