Hang on, I think you should only be allowed a post here accompanied by a photo. For us across the pond a lot of these places are unknown.

Along the NW coast of BC in-between the Inside Passage to Alaska and Hecate Straight (ocean) lies a great area that is seldom traveled. At the bottom of Principe Channel on the east side is Mockton Inlet. We anchored there on our trip south and took these pictures.
We had experienced a 50 knot gale the night before in the north arm of Patterson Inlet (frequently called Princess Diana inlet) so Mockton Inlet seemed like heaven. The 4th, 5th and 6th pics were taken at anchor. The bottom photo is leaving the inlet. The bottom where we anchored was not deep, shallow, irregular or otherwise undesirable. A good anchorage too as well as a pretty one.

There is no place quite like the Chandeleurs. I anchored out there near Middle Ground. A frigate bird rookery was nearby in the marsh grass. I will have to say when you are alone out there it's pretty eerie.Great place and great fishing.

Wineglass Bay, Tasmania, Australia. Been there, but not on my own boat...that's unfinished business....

However, this idyllic anchorage, actually in a small extinct crater on the edge of Lake Taupo, which is one humungous volcanic crater, is a place I have personally anchored. Surrounded by virgin native bush - fabulous, and only accessible by boat.
Trouble posting actual pic, so here's the link - click on Satellite view...

Looks like a truly beautiful place Peter. Stunning picture. Dosn't look much like a lake though. I zoomed out a little at a time and was amazed it really is a lake and looking like it's in New Zealand. Is that island just no of NZ Tasmania? Must be.
One thing I love about the computer is seeing more of the world and meeting people from far away places. Thanks

Went back. Now I see Taz below Melbourne. Looks like a lot of big water down there.

This is (another) destination my wife is keen to visit. Her nickname is G.
It also calls for the bigger boat. It is the Maldives.
