Cape Capricorn - On the Tropic of Capricorn

Sailed here from Gladstone after a nice rest, well, lots of walking and a couple of free "Industry Tours" which were well worth it. Now after crossing the Tropic of Capricorn we spent the night here at Cape Capricorn, a real nice spot, but a real rolly anchorage, but just one night here.

Jenny Lind Creek and the Larcs.

Went for a walk up to the Bustard Head Lighthouse and further to Jenny Lind Creek where we spotted two Larcs. Amphibious Larcs that is.

The Panorama is looking down on Jenny Lind Creek.

Pancake Creek

Arrived in Pancake Creek Friday afternoon, the 2nd of July 2010. A great place to anchor for a few days. Caught up with Captain Col of the good ship Lady Marlen, he's been anchored here for a couple of months. After here next stop Gladstone. It's cold here, but the sun is shining and all is well.
