Well, we were very chuffed to have got all the way up the Great Sandy Strait without touching the bottom but perhaps we were feeling a little too smug as we managed to find a sand bank in Hervey Bay near the entrance to Urangan Harbour which wasn't appearing on our chart (or so the Navigationer insists)... Luckily, the Skipper got us off quite quickly and inching forward very carefully we found our way into the Harbour without any further ado.
As it was Roger's Birthday, we treated ourselves to a couple of nights in the Marina, enjoying the local Hostelries and Restaurants and even managed to squeeze in another round of Golf (with more Kanagaroos skipping about).
Having had our Supermarket fix plus completed the obligatory Laundry runs, filled up with water, gas & diesel, we are now ready for the next leg...
