Tuesday Sept 1st 2009
We moved to Elworthy Island yesterday in Waddington Channel about 8 miles from Toba Wildernest.
There are wonderful clams, Oysters, Prawns and good cod fishing here and it is a very pleasant view from our anchorage. Within a mile of this anchorage there is a very large oyster farm.
Early this morning we drug anchor and awoke to Gary pulling our anchor up a bit. We reset the anchor and when out to pull our prawns pots. While we were out pulling our prawn pot and catching Ling cod Gary called to tell us we need to come back and reset again
After resetting the anchor the wind came up again and Noon Balloon moved off of our anchor and set their own because we were still swinging too close to shore.
