Boat trip to Moreton Island

 

A six hour window in the tide for boat  access to our backyard on Russell Island,the wind and weather align so our trusty Captain with a backpack of supplies in tow,  grabs an extra can of fuel and launches the tinny into Canaipa Pass with our sights set on Moreton Island.

A couple of hours into the trip the hoards were ravenous so a stop at the Little Ships Club at Dunwich to feed the masses was the priority on the agenda
