    Do not try to land your dink at Douglas Park. We grounded our dink but were not willing wade through rocks and muck to tie up.

    We decided to anchor here to catch the Melbourne St. Patrick's Day festivities. The anchorage has good holding but each time a boat went under the Melbourne Brige, the wake was felt even though we were pretty far away from the channel. A short dinghy ride to the Melbourne boat ramp that also has a nice tie up area. Main street is one block up and to the right. Great restaurants and pubs. Small food marts but no grocery stores within walking distance. It was very quiet but there are many traps around the area so we had to maneuver through them. No wifi but cell service was fine for us to use the hotspot.
