Breezy Bremer bay

We thought it was going to take three hours to get to Bremer Bay .. Buh bahh…. Don’t know how we got it so mixed up, but it took the best part of five and half hours. Though we did arrive into a beautiful sunny afternoon spreading over this delightful little seaside town.  There was grass! I can’t recall the last time we had a site that had grass on it. We could also pay for a fire pit and us pyromaniacs can’t walk past that sort of opportunity.

There was a drive along the coast from here called the Point Henry drive and it had some nice little spots along it. One of them was a little boat harbour with a jetty and when we looked into the water it was full of fish, so I thought I better get the rod out The kids and I all had fun catching these little fish called skippies. They were legal to keep at 25cm and every one we caught was 24cm. But they’re good little fighters and Louella had a chance to develop her own special fishing technique. She calls it the land the fish then scream and run technique. Loud but apparently effective. Lou and I went back that night and had a great time catching some enormous squid and little herring.

The next day we went for a walk along the shoreline and at one point we passed by a fish cleaning station and it was full of people cleaning these enormous salmon. I threatened them with some of my dad jokes if they didn’t tell me where they got the fish. So I headed straight there at the next nearest possible moment and had the best fishing time ever catching these enormous fish. It was the day before my birthday so I took my new bigger rod out to give it a try out. It was up to the task and just as well because my other rods were too small.

In an effort to be picked for the next Olympics we have been holding our own family frisbee tournaments when we are somewhere that has space. And this spot had a huge play area right next to our site. Enjoy the action shots.

My birthday was the next day so I opened some presents and cards and the kids promised they would behave and we drove to Albany and had lunch at a delicious Chinese restaurant.
