    There's good shelter all along the SE coast of Tasmania and a huge amount of variety in the scenery. Fortunately the trip to Tassie from the mainland is not a simple trip so we tend to be left alone by the hordes.
    And the annual haulout is a casual social event.

    Good trout fishing down in Tasmania . And after a Hobart "Quite little drink" feasting on crayfish in Launceston ? if I remember correctly , was a treat. Franklin River and the ancient Huon pine was also memorable.

    Will,
    Where in Australia is Tasmania? I thought your picture was Sitka Alaska! I started this thread thinking we're from all over the world so it would be great funn to see all the beautiful, different and even exotic places. I had no idea there was a place in Australia that looked remarkably like SE Alaska. As I looked at your picture I became aware that the tree on the right is not Alaskan, there are too many sailboats, the bridge is not quite right and the mountian is not the volcanic cone that is Mt Edgecomb. I'm still excited about seeing home ports in Europe, deserts, jungles and on rivers in cities ect ect. Thank you Will.
    Others may think their home port is dull and boring but to someone 10000 miles around the corner of the world it could be at least very interesting. I'd love to see pics of boats on floats especially if the poster can identify their own boat in the picture.

    Brevig Mission. Holy cow! Show 'em another when the house-sized ice chunks run by the beach at three knots.

    Tassie is an island that hangs off the south-eastern tip of Oz. It is, of course, the best bit:D

    Why jab at me on this particular thread? There is no reason for contentious behaviour here. Why not post a picture of your home waters instead, unless they are all on your brain?

    I don't know that it's my home port per se, but this is my favorite place to put in to paddle.

    La Conner itself is interesting, but it's the area south of there that is absolutely fascinating. The other nice this is that the boaters on the Swinomish are mostly very well behaved.
