Off for the Samurai Island re-union on Magnetic Island, we have chosen to stay on the Island for a couple of weeks.
All packed and ready to head off to Magnetic Island. We are leaving the Cub behind and only taking the Wagon.
Looking at Castle hill from the ferry wharf.
Looking back towards the Marina in Townsville, the Patrol boat on the left is decommissioned. Here comes our ride, Yeah. We are aboard. Jupiters in Townsville. Looking out to Magnetic Island and the break waters of Townsville.
Leaving the break waters of Townsville.
Nelly Bay where we are berthing, on Magnetic.
Saturday 6th-Tuesday 9th
Very hot day today, Had a quiet day, recharging everything while generator is on. No star trails as its turned cloudy. We saw the Satellite ( sky Lab ) go over again, we have been watching it for nights now. We are heading to Townsville and will be catching up with family on Dons side so no more photos for the web site until the 9th. Here are a few images of the Super moon in Townsville. This is the Jetty in foreground, and the shipping harbour and lights of the wharf in background.
Final image of the super moon, not as big as I’d thought it would be, still a lot of fun, very windy and cold. 9.30 pm The only cloud in the sky and of course it had to be in line with the moon, gave it some character. First glimpse of the super moon. Heaps of people doing the same as us. This image is looking over at Magnetic Island just before dark.
First image when we got down to the shore line for the super moon.
