On Wednesday we left Kermandie (in convoy with Corinthia) and headed back down the Huon, towards Recerche Bay. The weather was gorgeous- blue skies and seas were flat- except the very last bit where we facing directly into the Southern Ocean. Mark thought he hooked onto a fish, but sadly it was just kelp…..
Recerche Bay is absolutely gorgeous- long white sandy beach- with a few beach shacks scattered around. On Thursday morning we hiked around to Fishers Point- a couple of hours walk around the foreshore. Lots of white sandy beaches, rocky headlands, driftwood, rocks covered in lichen, clear blue skies,- we could see all the mountains clearly in the distance- and some convict ruins of the old pilot house at the end.
The last few days we’d been trying to catch lobsters as the Bishops had a lobster pot- with no success. But this morning we think they had one, and it was stolen by some bastard fishermen who were hanging around the pot and happened to have 3 lobsters…. Very annoying!
The Bishops headed back for Hobart and we spent a lazy afternoon and night hanging in Recerche Bay before heading off on Friday for Southport.
