Re: Cruising Broken Bay / September School Holidays
Compared to Christmas / New Year there was almost no boats in the Refuge Bay area last week.
Has been some rockfalls at the waterfall beach since I was last there.
That crowded anchorage (Refuge Bay and America Bay - they interlock) is probably the most crowded in all of Australia during holidays but it is full of moorings (used only casually) so anchoring is not necessary. It also has a couple of nice wee beaches, one complete with waterfall.
Not good for grumpy old anti social misanthropes like a certain fuzzball I could name but outside of the holidays it can be almost deserted.
StAnna ... had the same thing happen on Saturday evening. There were three of anchored with plenty of room between us and that left most of the bay unoccupied when this knobhead lobs in around 2200 and anchors in the middle of the three of us. Sigh.
Wopalx ... I've never seen dolphins that far in. Very cool.
