Anchored in a duckpond

After a couple of days in Hobart (a city that we think we'll really enjoy), we moved down to North Bruny Island, some 20 miles to the SE. We picked the anchorage called The Duckpond and, true to its name, it proved to be a very calm spot yesterday in spite of a brisk and cold southerly wind outside. This morning it has dawned calm and sunny by the southerly breeze blowing up from the Antarctic meant that the central heating was fired up!

We had fish rising all around us in the calm water.

Ripples caused by dozens of fish

The forecast promises brisk northerly winds tomorrow so we are heading back into Hobart today for a week at the Derwent Sailing Squadron marina. Some more photos to follow in the next couple of days.
