Cooktown to Cape Flattery

We left Cooktown around 9 a.m. this morning. By 9:10 we were under sail with 10/15 kts shifting from ESE to East and then finally to a light ENE.
It was a very relaxing sail as we weren't in any hurry, as we didn't need to be here by a certain time for safe anchoring. We arrived at the Cape around 3 and were anchored by 3:30. After getting the boat back
in order and having a cuppa we put the dingy in for a walk along the beach. It is such beautiful sand here!

White silica sand which is what they mine from here and send all over the world. The land is Aborginal land, but the guides say it is okay to walk the beaches.
Weather is shaping up to be reef weather for the next week. Tomorrow we head out to Ribbon reef #9.
Not sure about our internet coverage from there, so I will update when we can.
