For over 60 years I have had a deep and enduring love of the entire eastern half of Western Port Bay, but with emphasis on some special places mentioned below.
My parents established our first holiday home in San Remo in the early 1950’s, which led me to eventually fishing our wonderful bay in my own boat for almost 40 years.
Between Cape Woolamai /Jam Jerrup to the north and Tortoise Head/Corinella to the east, Western Port was where I “came to play”. The Bay’s ever-changing moods of wind and tides, coupled with the challenge of NOT running aground on a mud bank, were my way to “get away from it all”.
My special places are in the Eastern Entrance, especially San Remo’s Bonwick’s Beach below our ex holiday house and the “Granite Quarry” cove under Woolamai where I’m going, “when my time comes”. Time to “feed the fish”.
