Made it home salt wash from everything including me, starting to seize up now after four days of paddling. Awesome trip and am looking forward to the next one.

I made it back to Macleay Island After 2.5 hours of glorious sailing, caught a legal Tailor which the cat is loving. The conditions were perfect all weekend, thanks to all involved for a great time. I'll post up some pictures later.

I left macleay island about 10:30am with a plan to meet the crew at cabbage tree point and head to jumpinpin together. It was very fast going and the first leg didn't even take an hour. It was a very wet ride though with several underwater moments which had me concerned, but the yellow submarine always managed to come back up. I waited for kayakone to set up and we sailed to the camp site together. Big thanks to Trev for the sailing tips and local knowledge. It was a blast sailing properly for the first time in the AI and I couldn't wipe the smile off my face.
Image

Once at camp I set up the new tent, new sleeping mat and new sleeping bag. My first kayak camping trip was going well!
Image

Image
After a few drinks and some great conversation around the campfire I called it a night.

I set out fishing with Lapse and after a couple of hours with no luck decided to work my way between the million dollar boats lined up along the beach. Success! Well kind of, my first fish in he new yak was an underside tailor. Back he went but not before he left a few drops of precious blood, the new boat had been blooded!
Image

Alex decided to see what the mighty foxx could do and showed off some fancy moves for the new neighbours on the noisy party boat.
Image

So I packed up this morning and with the weather absolutely perfect for the sail home I said my goodbyes and set off for what I thought would be an arduous 3-4 hour slog home with frequent peddling but was instead blessed with the most awesome sail home, including the first legal fish landed. I didn't bleed it so it didn't look to appetizing for lunch but the cat loved it.
Image

Once again a big thanks to indy for the open invite and to everyone who showed up and made the weekend what it was. All up my first kayak camping trip was awesome, great people, great location and great weather, what more could you ask for? Oh yeah, fish! Meh, I don't even like fish!

Glad it was a good time, apart from the annoying loud houseboat.

I was not able to join you, even for just an arvo this past weekend. I had used my camp pass for this next weekend for when I camp with my fishing club on south straddie probably around the same spot.

Did anyone do some night fishing? I don't see too many lights on the yaks.

I reckon you should have tossed a bucket of cold water over the copulating couple, then all got up, got more piss into you, and danced to the loud music... lots of people pay good money for loud music!

You know the old saying... if you can't lick 'em, join 'em...

Perhaps if you all took a bint with you on the trip, you could all been copulating couples or root-rats whichever...

Older people just take out their hearing aids and go to sleep.

I think the bandicoots would have been even more nervous if Beekeeper and Qyak were there,
