14 – 18 December 2016

Weather:  Rain Thursday & Friday (light), great Saturday, overcast Sunday

What & Where We Ate:  Provisions onboard.  Chef plus some fish, blue swimmer crab caught which was eaten fresh.

Where We Shopped & What We Bought:  Couple of beers & wine @ Patonga, extra provisions from Brooklyn & Bobbin Head.

Who We Met:  Met a friend’s brother & his girlfriend who were on a sneaky romantic cruise and did not expect to run into anyone.  Saw them in Refuge Bay.

Memorable Things About the Cruise:

1st night Brooklyn
2nd night America Bay
3rd night Bobbin Head
4th night Refuge Bay

As of writing this note, son caught 45 fish this weekend and his grandfather caught 27 fish.  The fish were certainly on the bite!  Haul included: perch, mullaway, flathead, whiting, mackeral, flounder, taylor and 1 giant 70cm flathead.  Some great card games were had.  Very relaxing time, fun had by all.

Thanks once again Brad & Jane.  The boat is presenting very well, looks great and we love the provisions onboard to cover all the little things that we forget!

Reminder for next time: Patonga Seafoods shut at 4pm sharp! Prawns not available after that.  Patonga now have 3 club buoys available near the wharf for parking.
