After a couple of days at anchor in Little Glory Cove, we decided it was time for a change of scenery so this afternoon we weighed anchor and sailed to a small bay on the other side of Paterson Inlet. Kaipipi Bay is rather tight with a large rock at its entrance. Consequently, on our approach we handed sail and motored in. It is none to deep either. We negotiated our way past the rock which, being just after low water, was exposed and easily avoided and dropped anchor in 3.5 meters of water.

It is very quiet.

All is well.
