After thinking Pancake Creek was inaccessible to Pilgrim due to depth - Pilgrim draws 3m - we decided to check it out with an exit plan to head to Gladstone if things looked too tight.
We are delighted we made it in comfortably with 2-3 m below us at any one point and what an INCREDIBLE SPOT. If you're cruising the coast - don't miss this anchorage, just watch out for the tides if you draw a lot like us!
Hundreds of turtles greeted us on our morning paddle-board into the beach, making up for no sightings at Lady Musgrave.
We don't want to leave here but big winds forecast tonight it's time to head to Gladstone.
