In the dark, we picked our way down the river and through the Mooloolaba Bar, into the disappointment of a stiff Northerly headwind, which would've made our day uncomfortable ...and slow. So, quick decision, even quicker U-turn, back up the river to our anchorage and back to bed. ZZZZ.
Dropping anchor and satisfying ourselves that we were secure, it was soon kettle on and relax time. Until we realised that we were dragging with the current and about to hit a luxury waterfront home with marina and powerboat! Quick panic, fire up the engines and another U-Turn required.
So, this boat requires a bit more thinking about to anchor....our second "experience" for the trip so far.
With the weather patterns deteriorating, it was nearly a week in Mooloolaba, and after a couple more nights on the anchor we moved back into the Marina and stowed the dinghy.
