|The walk into Airlie|
Saturday: 0800h MrJ and I dinghied into the marina and walked into Airlie Beach to go to the market; buying some fresh vegetables and meat from the local produce stalls. MrJ got himself two more books to read.

Back on AR; MrJ went back in the dinghy with the water jerrys to fill and then we did some washing, washing the bedding and towels. MrJ does the washing onboard as he is the person strong enough to lift the water jerrys to fill our little wash machine. I usual hang the washing out on the lines that we have strung over the fore dace. While MrJ get the washing going I had already started with the cleanup inside.
There was even time for a short afternoon read/rest on the tramps before a quick shower before going over to Neriki for the evening.
Sunday: No rest for the wicked! Up and off early again, this time taking AR into the marina boat harbour to get her water tanks filled.

Just before we had finished one more boat came in; a larger catamaran than us, Penrod II, a big yellow cat owned by a friend Ken. No sooner had we moved off than he was coming alongside too. There was a lot of movement early in the boat harbour, tourist boats The Wave Breaker and Camira the large purple catamaran were on the move plus the interisland ferry Orca. MrJ put AR in line, in the middle of these other boat to leave the harbour to return to our old anchorage from last season beside the western break wall of the marina.
