Topped up our fuel tanks and headed to pancake Creek to hide from predicted heavy rain and strong winds due in the next couple of days. It was a pleasant trip, even though we had to motor. We took plenty of photos while passing 1770 - one of our favourite anchorages.
It was a quiet evening as everyone prepared for some nasty weather that was forecast. Apart from the strong winds, we were expecting a "rain event" with 100-200mm of rain. As is the way of cruising, the wind and lashing rain decided to hit after dark! We kept our motors running during the initial squalls, but eventually relaxed and went to bed. So thankful for our newly upgraded clears, which kept our back deck reasonable dry.
