Off ashore early as it is time to say farewell. We are returning north again. Conditions are good so we decide to put in a good days cruising. We bypass the Jackson and plan to anchor offshore just north of the Macdonald River. However the smoke from the fires is thick, so we continue further on and with the wind now coming from the west decide to try to get into the Doughboy River. A little shallow getting in but we found nearly 5m just near the point. It made for a very pleasant anchorage.
