Yay!! Monkey Mia
We arrived in the beautiful sea side town of Denham with the wind still howling. There is quite a lot to see around Denham and it is very close to
Monkey Mia without the price tag. We pick a site with a view over shark bay and didn’t put our owning out!! At night the wind pick up to 60km but Jackaroo (that’s our caravan) held strong.
Monkey Mia was great and the boys were lucky enough to get picked to feed the dolphins. There was a new baby dolphin so everyone had to stand out of the water rather than the usual knee depth. It was much more protected from the wind and we spent the day swimming and watching rays and turtles swim by.
Shark feeding frenzy
We drove out to Eagle Bluff which has a long board walk on the cliff looking over a shallow bay full of sharks and rays. We went to the Ocean Park Aquarium and leant about the fish and heaps on sharks, it was very good. We did some more unsuccessful fishing!! The boys and I spent a day at the beach and playground to give Mike a rest with his man Flu. Drove to an amazing beach that was made up of small cockle shell rather than sand and was appropriately named Shell Beach. Then to Hamelin Pool to see the stromatolites, these corals are the oldest living things on the plant approx 3.5 billion years old and responsible for producing oxygen that has created the world as we know it today! As impressive as they may sound, to look at they are, to quote Tom“rocks in the water”. Oh well!
