    Thanks Marc
    I've really enjoyed these shots, it's a place most Aussies won't see.

    I know the place well, I've spent a lot of time along the coast between Perth and Exmouth. The fishing is great, that's for sure, we're very lucky.

    I have heard that when people found out there was life rafts full of sailors turning up they rushed there with food and blankets thinking they were the survivors of the Sydney but got a rude shock when they turned out to be Germans.
