Also another heavily overcast day recently, all taken on Rotto (Rottnest Island)

Pics 1 & 2 are in "our private bay" with 'er indoors suitably rugged up in 2.

Pic 3 is from the pub wall in Thomson Bay. (The drinks are a frightening price !)

Flat seas and WA are not something that you would normally associate.

We get some beautiful days in the autumn when the wind goes round to the East and knocks the swell down, but in the spring and summer, it fairly howls from the South West pretty much every day.

We do get a bit of sun though....

Great stuff - she flies out on Friday My brother in law lives out by Bethalls Beach on the left coast, not a lot of boating out that side but it's not far from Auckland etc. I think she is taking her niece (8 years old) on a trip - I think she is thinking of going on a square rigger or something - any recommendations in the area?
