Monkey Mia

After leaving Point Quobba we headed straight to Carnarvon to get groceries at the Woolworths. We hadn’t had a decent shop since Port Hedland so we spent a good $340 as we had nothing left in the pantry.

We had lunch in the park where the kids and Roslaee all had a go on the flying fox.

At 1pm it was time to hit the road, but as we got to the first camp spot we thought it was too early to sit at this site, so we headed on, the next site was on top of a hill with amazing views, but if we camped there we would be blown about 20 klms away.

We drove on and on until we decided that we would head to Nanga Bay, which was 1/2 hour from Denham. The caravan park was rustic, but nice and they had good showers.

The next day we set off early to see the first interaction with the Dolphins at Monkey Mia which happens at around 8 am. We caught this one and the next two interactions, with the first and second only having 2 dolphins, but the last had 6 dolphins zooming along the beach catching yellow brim fish that were in the water.

Later that day we headed out to Francis Peron homestead and checked out the shearing sheds and jumped in the hot tub.

Denham was the next stop and after refuelling our bodies with lunch and the car with diesel we headed back to Nanga Bay.

Elijah and I did some late afternoon fishing, but had no luck.
The next day as we were leaving we called into Hamelin Pool and checked out the strotomites (hopefully spelt correctly).
