Sawmill beach, Cid Harbour. A truly lovely, very protected, anchorage.
It doesn’t show up that well in this photo, but I took it so I’d remember all the different greens on the hillsides. Cid Harbour.
Farewelling Cid Harbour – can you see all the yachts at anchor?
Turtles came to meet us, and farewell us, at every anchorage. I think they’ve formed a volunteer welcoming committee.
A cheery welcome from a delightful young turtle.
Dreadful photo, but you can see the size of the fish that were swimming around our boat at Blue Pearl Bay, Hayman Is.
My lunch today – 4 dozen oysters au beurre, fresh off the rocks at False Nara Inlet.
Weathering of the rocks in Nara Inlet. Can you see all the oysters on the rocks?
The beginning of the walk into the Ngaro Cultural Site.
In aboriginal culture it is common to ask their ancestors for permission before entering certain sites. This sign asks the visitor to pause and think about the people who walked here before them and acknowledge the Ancient Ones by putting your hand over the handprint.
A sculptural ‘welcome’ and information about the Ngaro Sea Trail
This is a particularly well set-up short walk. The information along the way is engaging.
The Ngaro caves and cave paintings.
Nara Inlet from the far end looking towards the opening. A well-protected and pretty inlet.
Another view of Nara Inlet. See our kayak on the little beach in the foreground?
Leaving the Ngaro Cultural Site. Top Shelf is at the FAR end.
I took this photo in admiration of the tenacity of TREES that will grow off huge rocks.
The anchor lights of the yachts in Nara Inlet. These are just the yachts that are anchored west of us. There’d be twice that number anchored in the opposite direction.
