Sydney Harbor - Rozelle Bay
Well here we are in Rozelle Bay not five minutes from the Sydney CBD in a very well protected, surprisingly quiet and FREE anchorage! That's right, we now live, albeit temporarily, on Sydney Harbour with three hundred and sixty degree water front views, easy access to shops and public transport, did I mention we haven't paid a cent?
I am quite surprised that we have spent so long here as we had heard from other cruisers that's its a pain to stay here with Maritime NSW hassling boats who stay too long and what not. We have had a great time and enjoyed Sydney more than we expected. Caitlin has also picked up some contract work which will fit in well with our current lifestyle and provide some much needed funds to keep cruising in comfort.
The weather is getting better by the day and has improved dramatically since leaving the Jervis Bay area - days are much warmer when the sun is out, right now I'm sitting in the sun with a light Northerly blowing - feels about 20C. We are now feeling the urge to move on though and have Pittwater in our sights by the end of the week if we can get the right winds.
So a few maintenance jobs to do this week while Caitlin works (real work) and hopefully we will be posting from Pittwater some time next week.
Best thing about our anchorage? Fish market 5 minutes by tender! And cheap!
Wharf where we leave our tender to go 'sploring. Crap location... ;o)
