View of the former Peninsular hotel site.

We are back to where Ashiki was born. It is probably one of the better ports on the Western Australian coast for a cruising yacht - on this part of the western shoreline anyway. Large protected waterway available to anchor in and all amenities close to the dock (pub, grub and Woolies). Boat lifting facilities, good chandlery next to the fishing dock (which is a public dock too). Every summer a number of boats, sail and motor, come and anchor for a week or two in the middle of town and enjoy the place.
The advantage of being at anchor in Mandurah - box seat for the new years fireworks display.

Anchorage on NYE. It was.. interesting.. watching the tide
of boats come anchor around us.

Anchored on top of, obnoxious music too.

Anchored in a tidal stream. The woman living opposite this small
(private) dock supplies us with fresh eggs, because she loves the view
of the (good looking) boat.

Fisherman's dock, favourite place to fix stuff.

Mandurah's ANZAC war memorial. Every town in WA has one.

Dolphin Quays Mandurah - good for fish'n'chips.
The place where this photo was taken has an
excellent Indian restaurant too.
