Yesterday afternoon, the wind settled down so we moved back over to South Stradbroke Island and anchored at the northern end towards Jumpinpin Bar. We went for a walk across a boggy yabbie bank to explore a sand hill that we could see nearby.
We climbed the hill, expecting to see the ocean, but the scene was more like an amazingly beautiful lunar landscape. It was a lovely walk through to the ocean beach, but all the time, I was conscious of my footprints leaving a scar on the landscape. Thankfully only temporarily, as by the next day when we explored the area again, the wind had erased all trace of us.
