Chabjuwardoo Bay

Sailing past a camping ground near Chabjuwardoo Bay

It was an easy day sail, 10 miles in a nice wind, though overcast, the route was inside the reef within view of land so flat water all the way, weaving between two boats with some serious looking recreational anglers onboard (I trolled a line, got nothing) and dropping anchor at Chabjuwardoo Bay. The notable feature of this locale was the point nearby, about 1 Nm hike from the anchorage was a camping ground (accessible only to 4WDs) Susie and I had stayed before, but in a 4WD vehicle for our honeymoon.

Adventurous kayaker. Smart chap uses a sail!

Ashore at Chabjuwardoo
The other notable is the windvane held course on its first trial! Much better too. Real test will have to come later.

View of the land beyond the cliff, sheep pasture and giant ant hills.

Looking North, only 80 miles to the top NW corner of Australia, 
where we take a right turn. :)
1 mile hike to see the old campground
