Anchored in Happy Bay with Happy Wife & Happy Life. What could be better?

 You can watch the video on YouTube HERE

Join in this episode as we rock and roll on our Whitby 42 Ketch from Goldsmith Island to Long Island in the heart of the Whitsunday Group on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. We anchor off the mothballed Happy Bay Resort with excellent protection from the approaching strong south easterly winds. Karen spent many fun filled days here as a child growing up on her parents Game Fishing Charter boat in nearby Shute Harbour.  She really enjoyed the memories rekindled during our visit.

About 40 years separates these two photos of Karen taken at Happy bay

We also got amongst the rainforest on another great National Parks Trail and spent some time trying to rediscover Karen’s childhood pirate cave.

 In Our Galley Karen invents a new fish dish so different it hasn’t even got a name yet but it’s so tasty it really deserves a great one.
