Down the D'Entrecasteaux Channel

The D'Entrecasteaux Channel - named after the French Explorer, Bruni D'Entrecasteaux who surveyed this magnificent body of water in 1792.

A picture perfect day.
A couple of fishing rods.
4 enthusiastic kids and 2 parents ready to reacquaint themselves with 
everything they love about this little island.
A day of jetty-hopping down the Channel was calling.
2 early morning takeaway lattes from Peppermint Bay.
1 Mullet caught by the keenest fisherman of the family.
Another drive through the lush rolling hills to another jetty.
There was crab catching and shell collecting.
A most scrumptious Lunch at The Red Velvet Lounge.
A perfect end to the school holidays.


  1. Is that a Sydney Swans pullover I spy?! Very impressed with that Mel! Gorgeous photos and it sounds like absolute bliss, soaking up those glorious Autumn days and the end to the holidays. Lovely! xo

    1. Sure is Jules, good spotting! However it is a hand-me-down from a Sydney cousin much to the dismay of the Pianoman who barracks solidly for Port Adelaide :-D

  2. Glorious, it's quite a mouthful but what a beautiful place. Love children fishing, they always catch the fish, that is what happens with our 4!! Love Posie

    1. "Dontra Castro Channel" :-)

      Never in a million years did I imagine the children to have the patience for this activity. They love it don't they?

  3. Just perfect.
    I love your pics - and the whole feel of the day.
    :-) xx
