We left Great Keppel Island Yesterday and after a fast but uncomfortable passage are now in Pearl Bay in the Shoalwater Bay defence training area. This whole area is closed alot of the year for military training exercises and is what one would call remote.
No mobile reception at all, and no track or road let alone a settlement within 100km in any direction. The bay however is breathtaking with a beautiful hard sandy beach you can walk along on knowing yours are the only set of footprints there. A Dugong swam past the boat today and we have seen quite a few turtles.
