... t you agree Paul?!! What a gorgeous evening on Moreton Bay. Glassy water, a clear night sky and of course delightful crew.
We head back towards the Logan River the next morning. Neville anchors and "Love Me Tender 11" is launched. She is our new croc resistant tender we have invested in for the trip to the Kimberleys.
