A Day in the life of a Cruising Couple – Hinchinbrook Island - Ep 23


In this episode of Dreamtime Sail on YouTube, we do all the important stuff in sailing cruisers lives. We leave a beautiful anchorage at Orpheus Island, catch fish, clean fish, enjoy a fantastic downwind sail, pass closely by the 6 kilometre long, Lucinda Jetty and into the Hinchinbrook Channel, catch more fish, clean more fish, anchor up, fix broken stuff on the boat, have friends on board for sundowner drinks, and share the fish we caught for dinner. Just a typical day aboard Our Dreamtime really.

And in Our Galley Karen shows an easy option for serving dinner for six in the cockpit.

We sailed to an island of giant clams

We sailed 'Our Dreamtime' north from Townsville to Orpheus Island and witnessed one of the Great Barrier Reef's most amazing sights when hundreds of giant clams squirt high in the air as the tide recedes. This is a short clip from the 'Dreamtime Sail' Episode we've just posted on YouTube.

Moored in crystal clear waters beside a very exclusive resort, (read expensive), we enjoyed the glorious beaches, underwater delights and spectacular sunsets FREE. That’s the cruising life for you.
In the 'Our Galley' segment, Karen shows how to whip up an easy to make but very tasty Pad Thai. Hope you can click across and check it all out. Cheers!

See more clam footage in the full video here and let us know what you think of the island in the comments.
