Rottnest-kids paradise!

FUCK ME, just did this whole post and lost it on save

After 1 1/2 hours with videos etc 

Sorry but just gonna let the pics do it now

Many thanks to Fuzzy79 (Alex) who once again acted as valet launcher/retrieve and parking for Leeuwin Ramp!

Breaky is a feature of our trips 

Crays were great, if you like spawners 

Luckily still got 2-3 a day along with the dozen or so berried!

Who needs an anchor winch when you have these guns to impress the ladies...

 

A run out to the West End for a go at Jump Rock 

Last day we planned to be off pretty early as we were heading to Adventure World for the day.
Of course the weather had other ideas, 30kt SE all night then 25+ at 7am.
We of course did what the Cruisecraft does as good as nay, and put the hammer down straight into it

Well not quite but 14-18 knots was pretty comfortable

  This seems to happen to me

Mon, 2018-01-08 09:42

 

 This seems to happen to me using my laptop. Always goes to an error page

 I can do a post using my phone but that becomes agonizingly slow. 

 Slowly giving up posting because of this and yes ive done updates to laptop and still no good

 

 

 Few boats over there, probably the only time of year some of them get used. 

 Looks the goods for sure
