Having enjoyed Busselton, this morning saw us leaving the anchorage after an incredibly calm night. We were all up early and saw the moon setting over the jetty.
Our early start meant we arrived in Bunbury in the morning. Dodging the dredger on the way in, we dropped the hook, and the dinghy and had a bit of lunch. The day was shaping up to be a seriously hot one! We dinghied into the little lake area behind the front and tied up. The Visitors Centre was just across the road. Their suggestions were all great apart from the Museum which we would have liked to see - but discovered its shut on Mondays.
For the third largest city in WA, Bunbury felt small - but it was interesting to walk around and the day was a cracker. Of course, that meant we had to stop for a small libation in the Mash Brewery on the water front to steel ourselves for the walk ahead!
The lighthouse is quite unique with a chequer board design. The rather interestingly shaped viewing tower was where the above photo was taken.

The sunset was once again spectacular, though in this case my photo was bombed by a dolphin...
Next up is Mandurah - not yet managed to track down a brewery within walking distance of the anchorage yet, but thats probably no bad thing as we won’t be there for long...
