Day 31 – Coral Bay

Posted from Coral Bay, Western Australia, Australia.

Yet another day of excitement in Coral Bay today.  Coral Bay Eco Tours are really getting a good wad of our cash, but it’s all been well spent.

Kel flipped out when she learnt I’d booked it.  She was ‘not happy’.  Didn’t think she could do it.  “And what about the kids! … they can’t do that!!!”.  This has lead to a sleepless night and much reassurance on my part.  My doubting family has rubbed off on me a bit though and I got little sleep last night too.

But now, it’s morning and we’re resigned to our fate.  Except Kel … she’s still looking for an excuse to try and swap to a different tour… something sedate, like a glass bottom boat in about a metre of water …

Day 30 – Coral Bay

Posted from Coral Bay, Western Australia, Australia.


Today Kel surprised herself.  We were booked in on a 3 hour quad bike snorkelling tour.  Kel hadn’t ridden a quad bike before, so took Blake along for moral support.  Hannah came with me figuring she’d be somewhat safer.  We were the only people on the tour.

Once we left the confines of Coral Bay and engaged 4wd and started heading up a few dunes it was all going well.  Well … that was until we lost Kel …

Day 29 – Coral Bay

Posted from Coral Bay, Western Australia, Australia.


A sleep in was had, since we couldn’t really do much, other than pack up and move to our new site.  Around 9am we were packed up and moved the 100m to our new home for the next 3 nights.  A full van setup was done for the first time ever this trip.  Ground cloth, shade cloth, clothesline … you name it, it was unpacked.  Kel also took the opportunity to pack away the winter clothes and break out the summer clothes.  The roof top box is now full of the ‘too many’ winter clothes we’d packed.

Day 28 – Coral Bay

Posted from Coral Bay, Western Australia, Australia.


We woke up at 8am, such was the sleep. We’d planned on staying here another day since we weren’t booked in anywhere else, but upon looking out at the water we started pondering another location. Where had the water gone? I grabbed the GPS and went for a walk … from the high tide mark to where the water currently was, was 550m … and it was still receding at a rapid rate, crabs and octopusses scrambling to keep up with it.

 

There’s a caravan on the shore way back there somewhere

 

After my kilometre round trip I grabbed the free camps book and found slim pickings between us and Coral Bay. There were a few roadside stops and also Warroorra Station. The decision made, we did a late packup and got underway.
