Happiness is about the journey, not the destination.

I've had this quote as my signature on my email for years now - but I'm having to really take it on board now. We're going to be in Maryborough for longer than expected. 
Our mail is holding us up because the Post Office we had it sent to is no longer in operation! We need to not rely upon google so much as it had the wrong details! 

Can you spot Anhinga? This is the view from Queens Park lookout here down toward the Mary River. We ended up having to re-anchor 6 times in total to be satisfied that we weren't dragging (I was very over it by number 4). 

Rene has been getting greasy in the engine room - figuring out why our stern gland is leaking and now figuring out how to fix it. A fellow yachtie who lives here in the marina - Peter and his little dog, Bundy (pictured) have been a big help. Peter has lent us a key to the marina here so we've been able to access the land easily and have a couple of hot showers (BLISS!). He has a lifetime of knowledge and has been filling us with plenty of stories and advice. 

There are many other jobs to keep us busy while we're here. But, for now, I'm going to go and explore the town...
