POSITION: Bennetts Beach
We woke early and after a breakfast of cereal, bacon, eggs and toast we got ready for the big day ahead. About 8 in the morning we headed over to Broughton Island by the small rubber dinghy. The water was crystal clear and a striking blue, the sand soft beneath our feet—postcard perfect. Some people went for a swim in the water, while others went for a walk. We trekked through bushes (with no track!) and got scratches all over our legs. But all that bush bashing was worth it when we arrived at the beach on the other side of the island. We rock climbed our way along a part of the headland and met a few not so friendly crabs. For the way back, we decided to take the path, but as that came to a dead end we had to clear our own. After eventually finding the beach, arriving back on South Passage we set sail for another day at sea. The sailing was good and the skies were clear again. We saw whales and a pod of dolphins that came and swam next to the boat. After a full day of watches, sailing and zigzagging our way down the coast, we dropped anchor and jumped off the boat to cool off before the treasure hunt. Everyone is now downstairs playing games and having a good laugh before we hop into bed. Many adventures await for our sail home tomorrow. Be prepared to listen to many great stories!
