Cruising – Eden to Ulladulla
By the time we arrived in Eden we were well and truly ready for a night on shore… well an evening anyway. So we did our chores and had a couple of drinks onboard before heading to the pub for dinner. The pub served great meals at a very reasonable price and we let loose a bit and partied into the night. Headaches in the morning, but more chores needed to be done so, while Dwayne slept, Katrina and I walked to town and did the washing, shopping and treated ourselves to a coffee and yummy smoked salmon bruschetta.
The weather was beautiful and we wandered around in our shorts and t-shirts. After waking Dwayne we had fish and chips on the wharf, bought some seafood for dinner, refuelled the boat and got prepared to leave.
We left Bermagui, the next morning, and while sailing to Batemans Bay we put the trolling line out and caught a bonito (skipjack tuna). We knew we couldn’t get over the bar crossing, and into the harbour, so we anchored off of Snapper Island. We rowed to the island for a closer look…. well some of us rowed and someone took selfies!
I can’t tell you about the sail to Ulladulla, as I slept the whole way! Once we had arrived, however, we moored at the wharf and had dinner at a Thai restaurant nearby. We met Frank, who when dining alone, Dwayne asked to join us. Within minutes he was offering us the use of his washing machine and inviting us for a drive along the coast the next day.
A drive to Batemans Bay allowed us to visit the town we had, a few days before, only been able to see from the boat. Fish and chips for lunch at a nice waterside café (delicious) before driving down the coast to look at the beautiful beaches.
