Exmouth day 3. 20180531

Today was a lay day for both travellers so we embraced the mundane of supermarket shopping, a massage for this old bloke, a visit to the best bakery for lunch and not much else. Probably baked beans and toast for tea after an extravagant but yummy meal out last night, just…

Exmouth day 2. 20180530

So today was a fun day for both of us, for different reasons. My TP enjoyed the lay day after yesterday’s 16 km hike. She managed to get in much stitching, caught up on her online videos and had a nice rest without having to follow her TP around. For…

Exmouth day 1. 20180529

We left from Yardie Homestead to travel the short distance to Exmouth today. On the way we visited the old Vlamingh Head lighthouse to the west of Exmouth and enjoyed the panoramic 360 degree views from there. Looking west over the Indian Ocean, several oil or gas rigs were visible…

Cape Range National Park day 3. 20180528

A day including cruising the Yardie Creek, snorkelling at Turquoise Bay and early home. We also spied two bold dingoes on our trip into the park this morning, hanging out on the road and perhaps, plotting to con a naive tourist to give them some food. They looked much like a…

Coral Bay day 4. 20180525

It rained overnight! And quite an amount to the extent that the council had to bring in graders to patch up puddles and fill the ruts left by exiting vehicles. All good now but damage easily done given the deluge, soft sand and big vehicles. Otherwise a very quiet and…

Coral Bay day 3. 20180524

Just a lazy day to reflect, relax and rest. Weather fine, light breeze. Plenty of sap droppings on our vehicle from overnight condensation. Let’s hope for rain and strangely someone said there is some forecasted for tonight. Will believe that when we see it as we have not seen rain…

Coral Bay day 2. 20180523

Today was all about SCUBA diving and snorkelling on the Ningaloo Reef, a place that gives the Great Barrier Reef a run for its money. So spectacular. Most proud of my travelling companion who came on the dive trip and snorkelled two reefs and two other occasions to view the…

Coral Bay day 1. 20180522

After enjoying a sumptuos meal out last night in Carnarvon, enjoying the delicious fresh snapper and other tasty food plus wine, we set off a little later for today’s journey. Before we left town we visited the space museum and telecommunications centre. Carnarvon played a key role as a ground…
