1. Public moorings are provided everywhere so there is no need to anchor and more importantly no need to retrieve and clean a muddy chain (particularly as I haven't yet installed the washdown pump that is still in the box in the bilge!).
2. A dude in a boat comes around each day to all the bays and sells the papers, coffee, bread etc etc,
3. Waterfalls abound ashore for a daily fresh water washdown of salty kids (no need for aforementioned pump)!

The girls loved swimming from the boat and also getting in and under waterfalls. One set of falls in America Bay were hard won after a steep climb to the pools at the top.

We grabbed this opportunity today to head North before another 5 or so days of Northerly winds set in tomorrow.
We are looking forward to visiting friends and relatives in Lake Macquarie and also seeing the sites of what looks to be a fantastic waterway.
