On the move at last--Saturday 27th

Well we've been weather bound in Bundaberg for the last week--blowing like stink from the south-east--the direction in which we want to go. But the forecasts indicated that by this morning the wind would back to the east and moderate, so off we set.
The first 20 miles were a bit unpleasant--seas still rough and more wind than forecast--we had to motor sail as still a lot of south in it. But then the wind backed and moderated and we had a decent sail through Hervey Bay and into our anchorage for the night--Kingfisher bay on Fraser Island.
Having set off at 0600, we anchored after a 55 mile trip at around 1530--then a late lunch/early dinner and ashore for a walk with Pete & Marge from Peregrina. Back on board, and doing the blog--though there seems to be a problem with mailasail so don't know when it will be sent!!
