Dec 1st

Pinch and a punch for the first day of the month.... padlock white rabbits. That's a little game that is played here in Australia. The saying is given with a pinch and a punch and if you don't say padlock then the person you are pinching can say a hit and a kick for being so quick. :o)
It is also the 1st day of summer Down Under.
We are still here at GKI (Great Keppel Island) We moved from Long Beach today as there is a SE change in the weather expected to move through sometime tonight. We have moved around to a beach called Fisherman's Beach which is right in front of the resort. have to say at the moment it is not the most comfortable anchorage. The winds have been blowing from the N and got up to the 20 knot mark and now have died all together leaving us to hang in the current which is running on the strong side due to the spring tides ( tides run higher highs & lower lows, which makes for more current moving, due to the Full moon tomorrow also happens on the new moon), anyway it is carrying us side on to the swell. a bit rocky rolley! We met up with some friends of ours from Mooloolaba
( Just Magic) when at Long Beach and they moved around to this beach as well. We met on the beach and went and got an ice cream from the resort. Also as we were sitting having a chat we saw a monitor lizard. Sunset pic is from last night.
