Resting in Smoky Bay Day 73 Sunday 17th June 2018

As we are in no rush, and the wind would be strongly into our faces today we took an executive decision to rest on this lovely site.

Once again the laundry beckoned as we pay the price of only having two sets of clothing, it did dry on the line so saving a little on the tumble drying.

I managed to get another loan of some fishing tackle and off to the pier again. This time with success though a nice King George Whiting (one had to go back as well, too small). It had to be filleted at a fish cleaning point, you cannot throw unwanted fish parts into the sea as here there are these things called sharks which are attracted to fish blood!

Pat and George caught a squid so we now know how to deal with those now, for our starter tonight we had squid, octopus (caught yesterday) and whiting, all very nice indeed. Then we finished up the stew from yesterday. I did try to catch a squid once dark but again thwarted, it is only a matter of time until I have one in the bag.

We had a lovely camp fire again where a number of people stopping on the site gathered around and had a few drinks, a nice end to the day.
