Broadhurst Bight to Monkey Mia

Hi everyone,
Today we had a pleasant 24nm passage to Monkey Mia.  We initially motored around Cape Peron then had a great sail for a couple of hours until the wind died completely.    We are anchored in 4.5m over sand at 25 47.4s 113 43.3e.  Here's our track...

The anchorage at Monkey Mia is a "pool" entered across a bar on the W side.  We saw a minimum depth of 1.8m (reduced to datum) just after we passed the last red mark shown below.  Beyond the bar the pool is about 3m deep (ditto).  There are several moorings but there is plenty of room to anchor.

Since arriving there has been no wind to speak of.  Tis like a millpond...

We've seen a few dolphins and a couple of sea turtles so far.  Looking forward to seeing more.  This is certainly a lovely spot.  Very tranquil.

We expect to stay here for several days.  5 bars on the mobile!
