The other half went fishing just about every day and didn't catch a thing but I think that is karma as he had just come back from a weeks fishing charter with his limit of 20kg of fish fillets.
So with out further ado here are some holiday snaps.
This is the shipwreck of the SS Mildura, The SS Mildura was a cattle ship on its way from the Kimberley when it got lost in a cyclone in 1907. It was a 2217 ton steel steamer built in Glasgow in 1901. The Mildura was wrecked on March 10, 1907 when it clipped the North West reef. The crew was rescued by SS Burrumbeet but all the cattle on board were left to die.
Salvaged timber and iron from the Mildura were used in renovations at the Yardie Station homestead. The hull sat on the reef until WW2 when it was used for bombing practice.
This is the website to look at the tour and wonderful people that run it (they are currently nominated for a Western Australian Tourism Award, Good Luck Guys!!)

The Threat To Mauds Landing
The 3 pictures above are just shots of the landscape, and at the right time of year you can see whales frolicking in the ocean - Now I have lived here in Australia for over 20 years and up until last week had never seen a real whale, but Friday afternoon after getting off the plane and going for a drive I saw my first ever in the flesh real whale and it was awesome!! They weren't super close to shore as normal as they are currently doing the migratey thing to cooler waters.
This is Vlamingh Head Lighthouse, Due to the location of this lighthouse it provides sweeping views of the Cape. It was built in 1912 and was originally known as the North West Cape Lighthouse on Vlamingh Head. This lighthouse was built because of the wrecking of the Mildura in 1907 along this coastline. The first light to come from this lighthouse was on 10 December 1912.It was damaged by Cyclone Vance but today it is fully restored. It also has the distinction of being Australia’s only kerosene burning lighthouse.
Well I hope you enjoy looking at my holiday snaps if you want any info about where I went, what is there to do there etc just flick me an email or leave me a comment..............
