Disaster and Dessert – Free Range Sailing Ep 93

August 14, 2019


– For today’s little outing we’re gonna go see the
Bustard Head Lighthouse. In it’s past, you know, it had been vandalized by a few people. But some private people
actually took it upon themselves to just sort of fix it up, patch it up. And now they run tours there and show a little bit of history. So you know we’re gonna be into that. Think they charge something
like $10 a person, and that goes to the upkeep. So we’re more than happy
to contribute to that. But at the moment we’re just
enjoying the walk up there. Even though it’s quite a warm day, luckily we’ve got a bit of breeze. It’s not too bad. (gentle instrumental music) – [Pascale] The Bustard Head lighthouse was first lit in 1868, and was Queensland’s first coastal light. (gentle instrumental music) The site was chosen to warn seafarers of the dangerous rocks
just off the headland, which can be seen here to
the left of the lighthouse. (gentle instrumental music) – We came off the, whoa! Look at that big spiderweb. (laughs) I’m not doing my job, my job is to run into all the spiderwebs and keep them out of Pascale’s face. (pascale laughs) But we came off the
power line service track, that we’re just looking at then, into the trees. And as Pascale said it, the temperature dropped
like five degrees instantly. (water rushing) So when we come back
we’ve got a few choices. – We might walk along the
beach on the way back, it’s gonna be low tide. – [Troy] Hot and mosquito’s. But some friends we just met said yip, go via the beach. So that’s what we’ll do. (water rushing) (gentle instrumental music) Mozzies? – I think they’re pretty much gone now. They’re not sort of, – [Troy] I can see a
few hovering around you. – [Pascale] Yeah, they’re not as bad. (gentle instrumental music) The lighthouse was de-manned and converted to automatic
operation in January 1986. A caretaker was instated
to look after the lights, but was then removed in the
same year to cut back on costs. And so started the tragic
decline of the site, from vandalism and neglect. Thanks to the perseverance
and extreme generosity of a handful of individuals, the lighthouse and it’s surrounds was liased to the Bustard
Head Lighthouse Association, and this historic site was
restored to it’s former glory. (gentle instrumental music) We were given a tour of the lighthouse, the museum and it’s surrounds, by the current volunteer caretakers. (gentle piano music) The lighthouse was constructed
from cast iron panels, fabricated in England. This is a photograph of the lighthouse, before it was dismantled
and shipped to Australia. (gentle piano music) On display in the lighthouse museum, are pieces of the
original eight-sided lens. (gentle piano music) This telescope belonged to the first lighthouse superintendent, Thomas Rooksby, who held his post here for 35 years. The first lights were fueled by an oil lamp, pictured left. This lamp was replaced with a
middle kerosone lamp in 1917. The lighthouse lights
became electric in 1935. (gentle piano music) – [Man] This is the one
that was put in 1935. It was electric. This is just taken out, and then it was restored and put back in. The real light, as you see it now, if you stand back here. We’re over here. If you just put your
head right back in there, put it right back in, – [Troy] Oh yeah, it’s still spinning. – [Man] So yeah, it spins 24 hours a day. – [Troy] But it’s not illuminated there. – [Man] No, it’ll probably only be illuminated tonight. ♪ The noise the noise ♪ ♪ The voices call across the river ♪ ♪ The bones the bones ♪ ♪ The river moans ♪ ♪ I love you more than ever ♪ – [Pascale] In the distance
is the town of 1770. The first place in Queensland
where Captain Cook landed. ♪ This time ♪ ♪ The voice the voice ♪ ♪ The noise is called across the river ♪ ♪ The sun the stone where nothing grows ♪ ♪ And April is the cruelest month ♪ ♪ We will run for miles ♪ ♪ The call of the crowd dies ♪ ♪ We’ll be ♪ Several tragedies, including suicide, illness, burns and accidental drownings led to many deaths at
this remote light station. – [Man] Right, this is Alfred Power. And that was original like that, because his name was power
and he was a line repairer. – [Pascale] Alfred Power visited the Bustard Head lighthouse to repair the telegraph line in 1889. In a terrible tragedy
involving a capsized vessel, he was drowned. Along with the acting
superintendent’s daughter, 20 year old Mary Gibson. And the assistant lightkeeper’s wife, 39 year old Elizabeth Wilkinson. The Bustard Head Lighthouse Association has done a fantastic job restoring and looking after the graves. – [Troy] So there we go, that sort of wraps up our tour. It’s the only lighthouse in Australia or Queensland? – In Queensland, that you can go up there. – It’s a still-functioning lighthouse, and it’s the only one that you
can still go and have a tour. – Yeah. – So, but we went and had a look at the cemetery there. To be totally honest, if we’d stayed there much
longer we’d be joining them. The mozzies are pretty fierce. – Yeah, really fierce. – I can feel my, (laughs) – Biting through clothing and, – I can feel my blood pressure dropping. – Yeah. (laughs) – [Troy] Yeah, that was pretty cool. (gentle guitar music) (pascale laughs) (gentle guitar music) (troy laughs) (gentle guitar music) – Well we’ve been in Pancake Creek for a few days now, and we haven’t even made pancakes yet! As you probably know, we’re really into buckwheat pancakes. And when our friend Annabelle
came to stay with us, she told us about a variation
on buckwheat pancakes, which is super simple and really healthy. It’s sprouted buckwheat pancakes, so what I did last night is
grabbed a cup of buckwheat, and then soaked it in two cups of water. And all we’re gonna do
is food process this up to get our batter. I might drain off a
little bit of the water, and then we can add a little bit more if it’s not quite the right consistency. And that’s our batter. It’s as simple as that. We’ll add a little pinch of salt, and then you’ll see how
fantastic these turn out, with just buckwheat. It’s really, really great addition to your yoddy stores, if you can find ’em. Okay so we’ve got our batter here. And that’s a good dripping consistency. We’re gonna cook them now. I’ve just got a little fry pan on the go, on medium heat with about
a teaspoon of butter in it. (bright instrumental music) (pancake sizzles) Oh! (laughs) Not quite ready. (pascale laughs) Oh. Ay! Okay, so that’s a pretty good yield for one cup of buckwheat, I reckon. – [Troy] Yeah, do I get it all? – No, you have to share with me. (laughs) So we normally, I don’t know, we mix it up with what we top with. Sunflower seeds, coconut shavings. But today we’re having
honey and peanut butter with a little bit of
coconut oil mixed through, so you can drizzle it over
the top of your pancakes. And like I said, it’s just sprouted buckwheat
in the food processor, with water and a pinch of salt. And I’ve just been frying
them on the fry pan for the last 40 minutes, with a bit of butter. (gentle guitar music) – My mouth’s watering like crazy. What have we got here, Bill O’ Wheeler honey? – [Pascale] Mhm. – I think we opened
this this week. (laughs) If I wanted to, I could definitely roll it. Like that, just like a normal pancake. Maybe slightly crumbly. It’s just trying to break on the edges, but that’s a pretty tight roll. Mm, the crunch is good. (gentle instrumental music) – [Pascale] Along with the stingray, we’d noticed many shovelnosed
rays hunting the shallows. And, having never eaten shovelnose before, we were keen to try one. (gentle instrumental music) These holes behind the eyes
are for drawing water in, so the animal can breathe. And that’s what makes this a ray. Here you can see the gills
are on the underside, and I’ve cut through
them to bleed the animal. As you can see, it’s got a tail and fins like a shark, and some people call
them shovelnosed sharks. But because of that gill arrangement, they’re actually a ray. (gentle instrumental music) Shovelnose. – [Pascale] What do you think? – It’s a really subtle flavor. It’s delicious. A really nice texture. The only thing that I don’t
like is there’s so much head. (laughs) That um, – [Pascale] We don’t get a lot of meat. It’s only one meal for that big ray. – Right. So not really enough
recovering with filleting it. So I don’t think I’ll hit ’em again. Even though they’re delicious. – [Pascale] Mm. – I mean, if we’re really hard up for food maybe I’d consider it. But I don’t think we’d get
enough meat off the actual animal to make it worthwhile for
us to really target them. What do you think, Pascie? – [Pascale] I think so too. Stingray is better. – Mm. – [Pascale] But they’re still good. – It’s really good meat, though. – [Pascale] It tastes
a bit like shark to me, I reckon. – It’s, there’s no hint
of rubberyness at all. So shark, little shark’s in season for sure, but there’s, you wouldn’t have any danger of heavy metals
or anything in these. You know? Because they’re laying around on the sand. Mm, they’re really good. – Hi folks, I really hope you enjoyed
this week’s episode of Free Range Sailing, and if you did, don’t forget to give it a Like. The information in this video was based on a book by Stuart Buchanan, called The Lighthouse of Tragedy. He was actually one of the founders of the Bustard Head
Lighthouse Association. And it’s a great read, with tales of abduction and murder, and lots of shipwrecks. So if you’re into that sort of thing, definitely check it out. I’ve seen that it’s available on Amazon. But if you’re in the area, 1770, or if you visit the lighthouse yourselves, you can pick up a copy there. As always, don’t forget to subscribe to our channel to stay notified
of any upcoming videos. And if you’re interested in
supporting our productions, we’ve put a link to our Patreon page in the description of this video. (upbeat instrumental music)

    I'm guessing the lighthouse is named after the bird of the same name. They could be confused with the Curlew but they are actually a bit larger with a distinct black cap. They are good flyers but spend their days quietly foraging through the under growth. I once had the pleasure of working in the bush where the Bustards became quite used to us and became good company although still a little shy. They are very fast runners and will most often run away when alarmed instead of taking flight. Every video I have meant to remark on your square or opposing swells. That's very rare and your drone shot of it in your introduction is stunning.

    Guys was certainly interested when you showed the manufacture of the lighthouse and the way Bridgwater is spelt as its close ito where I live in Somerset ..UK. Seems Hennet and Sphinx built many of the cast iron bridges and locks in and around the Somerset Coast and Bristol and built the pipes for the famous Brunel Atmospheric Railway along the South Devon Coast. The company later became. Bridgwater Engineering Company.

    Des Mergard tried to take up the lease for the lighthouse buildings as it was being de manned. Lease fell through and the government seemed like they would rather have it all fall into disrepair than allow a commercial entity run it. Des wanted to use the buildings as a northern accomodation base to support his LARC amphibious vehicle tours from his 1770 township marina. Would have been a great enterprise. Des and the boys used to look after the graves as part of the ongoing tours up to Bustard Head lighthouse. Mate, you gotta have a ride on the LARC. Hey Jenny Lind Creek is very silted up with sand eh.

  • Reply michael close August 8, 2019 at 11:47 pm

    yep shovelnose are great eating but you need a big one for a feed. you get more meat of banjo rays it tastes like shark but the meat is a bit stringy which makes it more chewy than shark. it's perfect for cutting into bit size cubes though.

    Hey dude, how do you go about sleeping, I am always disappointed/stunned at what is referred to as a berth, in 30' – 35' boats, how the hell is your average adult supposed to get a decent nights sleep in 5.5' as some forward V berths and dinning table setups are? I'm only 5'10'' and I image you as 6' or a bit more. I know the forward v berth in a compass 28 is a joke and I don't image a clansman as being much different, so do you sleep compacted or is a quarter berth an option or what??? do you just have to make do it a ridiculous and seriously lacking option/space?

    What a wonderful adventure you are both having! For date perspective, the other day I happened upon a fully functioning windmill in Southern Netherlands that was built in 1724. That is nearly 300 years of continuous operation. These windmills in their prime would pump some 40,000 litres of water per hour. But Dutch windmills were used for a huge variety of functions. The ones that intrigue me most are those that were set up for cutting timber from logs at a time when everywhere else was cutting timber man powered in saw pits. It was this advanced technology that gave the Dutch a huge edge is ship building as they could cut the timber quickly and at a very low cost.

    Thank you for the Grand Tour. I'm a sucker for old lighthouses…Just love 'em. Nearby we have the tallest lighthouse in Florida. It's across the river at Ponce ('DeLeon') Inlet and it keeps going with the aid of volunteers, so I get the appeal.
    And here you can climb the light and explore the grounds for a very small fee. I'll look the book up online, as I probably will never get to 1776 on my 30 ft sloop.

    I happened to live in the country with biggest buckwheat production in the world… Use roasted buckwheat flour mixed with regular flour 50/50. It is not that hard to make it β€” just crush roasted buckwheat. Roasting is the key to nutty flavor and crunchy texture. Your buckwheat is not roasted I believe (very light). Roasting can be easily done on a big pan with constant mixing. Stop it once color starts to change and light smell start to appear.

    We found that a few drops of Tea Tree Oil on hats and clothing repels Scottish midges. Maybe it would work on Ozzie mosquitoes? It also doubles as a good antiseptic and anti-fungal agent too and the smell is not unpleasant.

    I really enjoy drone pictures that give context to the subject of the video; in this case it is the setting surrounding the lighthouse, at 5:49 and again at 14:57.

    Helloo πŸ™‚ Just watched all the episodes after I was recommended the channel by another yachtie I watch.
    Are you still a couple of months behind on the videos compared to where you are right now? And if so, are you going to catch up to present day ?
