Day 48: Nettle Island to Mayne Bay

A fellow C-Dory owner, Terry, emailed me a few days ago and recommended I contact his friends, John and Bev, who have a house in Mayne Bay. I emailed John and Bev and they were at their home and invited me to tie to one of their mooring buoys for the evening.

On my way over I stopped at Hand Island and explored a bit on shore. It’s one of the designated kayaking campsites, but nobody else was present in the late morning. Several sandy beaches were quite attractive. On a sunny day I could sit ashore and read for hours. Or explore on foot for an equally long period.

Lots of great exploring at Hand Island

I found John and Bev’s cabin easily enough. John paddled out and helped me grab the mooring buoy, then welcomed me to their slice of paradise. They have a beautiful home overlooking Mayne Bay. Rocky beaches stretch for miles in each direction. I happily used their shower before we walked along the beach for a couple hours. Then back to the house for (more) drinks and dinner. John and Bev, thanks so much for your hospitality!
