My neck of the woods is Bairnsdale, with Paynesville on the Gippsland Lakes being 15ks south and plenty of launching choices. I intend to upgrade my camera but this time have taken a couple using my phone when I sailed yesterday. Incidentally it was a nice day out but not outstanding other than I visited Mickey who is holidaying with his wife (Minnie) on their houseboat out there. Getting busy now with lots of boat traffic which brings the lakes to life.
Paynesville is a village of a couple of thousand people, has a ferry to get people and cars across to Raymond Island, and is a mixture of the old fishing port with the new canals and homes that have shot up in the last 10 years.
Isn't it interesting to read and see where people on this forum spend their time on their Adventure Islands...........Pirate
Hey Pirate - we just got home!
Have left the houseboat moored and ready for visitors arriving later today.
Hopefully I will have some photos to post.
The ones you posted above are not showing up - all I can see are a couple of small boxes with an x in them.
There are some absolutely fantastic looking photos/locations on this thread. Thanks to you all for sharing - makes me want to go there
Well here goes - my first attempt to upload photos
Hopefully you will see:
1 Pirate arriving at Ocean Grange Landing on Gippsland Lakes (90 mile beach is a short walk accross sand hills)
2 Another shot of Pirate with Minnie Mouse on the front deck of our trailerable houseboat.
3 A better shot of the houseboat and my amphibious bicycle
If this works they may appear in a different order.
