The Eimeo pub

By now it was mid morning and the seas were still calm but the wind had died to 4 or 5 knots and so we we motored north to Eimeo.


The Eineo pub was an old building on a headland that held good memories for Scott as it was his watering hole when he was in his 20’s and working in the area.
On the way Scott caught a School mackerel which was filleted and put aside for dinner.
The water around the Eimeo pub headland was very shallow and stayed that way quite some distance.
We ended up anchoring a long way from shore and took the tender into the beach.


It was a long walk and all uphill.
The pub has been turned into a cafe but still bought back a lot of memories for Scott and we spent an hour or so reminiscing and then walked back around the bay to the headland where there was a nice looking resort.
The manager of the Dolphin Heads resort had no problem with us sitting around the pool and so we kicked back and enjoyed a fruit platter before heading back to the boat.
