Thomson Bay, Rotto

14 October 2011
After a day of rest at Jurien to recover and repair Illusion’s steering issue, and clear their prop we made ready for the next leg and finally headed on our last overnighter to Rotto on Wednesday morning with the prospect of a westerly and eased sheets. 22hrs later after an awesome run down the coast, ducking and weaving between shipping containers as we made Thompson Bay, Rotto at 4am just in time to catch up on some shut eye before the kids were up and ready for a day on the Island. Our first stop was the bakery, followed by a few refreshments at the Quakka Arms while the kids enjoyed the beach. Ahhh, home at last! After all the cruising grounds we have journeyed through over the past 6 months Rotto is still hard to beat and holds a special place in our hearts. We now have a new appreciation for our local cruising grounds, the east and north coast is nice but our SW-metro waters aren’t too bad after all.
