2014: A very good year

This year has been a big one, and Manookatoo has featured heavily in it, particularly when it comes to enjoyable experiences.......
JANUARY saw us cruising on the Gippsland Lakes, enjoying sunshine, swimming and friends. The long school holidays and ambient weather made every day pleasurable!
FEBRUARY took the First Mate back to work, with trips to the lakes restricted to every second weekend but worth the drive for the relaxation that days on the boat bring.
On the jetty its easier to disembark without getting wet feet.
MARCH began with a long weekend, and an extra boating night, and finished with the end of term school holidays - two more weeks on Manookatoo!!
APRIL - yes, we're still on the lakes; the cooler weather took us to jetties and riverbanks where disembarking didn't involve wading, but we still loved the waterfront.
MAY saw the Captain and cronies cruising back to Westernport, where day cruises in fine weather are easier and boat servicing can be done. Jason and Bob make sure Manookatoo is always in top shape!                







JUNE and JULY took us cruising in warmer waters, without Manookatoo - an APT trip to Cambodia
and Vietnam, and a cruise around Halong Bay and along the Mekong River - most enjoyable!
AUGUST meant warmer weather was approaching - time for a new location for Manookatoo - city living on the Yarra River! We took a short term berth at Marina YE and made the most of everything the city had to offer.



 SEPTEMBER brought great excitement to the First Mate - a wedding - and with friends and family in town, a great time to show off the city and Manookatoo



Catching up with friends is always fun






A beautiful bride to be
OCTOBER  was the month for enjoying city living - cruises along the Yarra, into Port Phillip Bay, with overnight stays in Williamstown and Sandringham. The weather was benevolent and the weekends were lazy.

NOVEMBER 

means Melbourne Cup weekend, with a trip to Geelong for a change of scenery. It also brought a new grandson - and a quick trip to Canberra to meet him! But....with summer approaching it was time to say goodbye to City life - a move to Yaringa, then a cruise to Lakes, just in time for.....
DECEMBER - and all the joys that Christams brings, before our next SUMMER HOLIDAYS!!
Happy New Year to all our friends near and far - may we look forward to many more Manookatoo Adventures ☺️☺️☺️
