Curlew Island to Middle Percy Island

The anchorage began to get a little roll-y, so after some porridge and some furious games of Rat-A-Tat-Cat, we motored out from behind the sandbanks, past the reef and pointed Bella Luna toward Middle Percy Island.

We were all feeling very excited to go back there, and hoped to see our Treehouse friends – Kate and Lindsay – and check on our boat-sign we had left in the A-frame. We had last been there in late June…

Yesterday’s “sailing adventure” had made me paranoid, and I was convinced that we were going to endure similar conditions on the way to Middle Percy. WRONG. The seas had calmed down…as had the wind…

We did more motoring that I would have liked, but also a lot of that awesome kind of champagne-drifty sailing – indispersed with the occasional whale. The wind eventually appeared with a few hours to go – we were so excited to be going somewhere that we KNEW was awesome.

Middle Percy Island

As soon as we anchored we headed ashore and the Smalls and I rocketed up to the Treehouse, clutching packets of yogurt mix we had bought for Kate and Lindsay – but alas – they were away in Brisbane. Oh woes…

However, we were able to catch up with Cate (the leaseholder) and Donny – captain of the trimaran Silver Gull III and current dogsitter of Rhythym, one of our favourite canines who belongs to Lindsay and Kate.

We promised to meet Cate and Donny in the morning at the lagoon to help them load mother and baby goats aboard Cate and John’s boat – they were being taken to live on the mainland. Consoled by thoughts of that, we went back to the A-Frame and met Katy and Rob from the beautiful boat Watermusic and checked that our boatname was still in the place we had left it, back in late June.

Our contribution to the A-Frame. Middle Percy Island.

All was well…
