26/10 – 27/10
Before we left Denham we managed to get a couple of long bike rides in, and on one of these we pedalled out to a place called Little Lagoon. What a lovely lovely little spot, we ended up walking right around the lagoon and saw lots of water birds and fish.
Next we visited the Ocean Aquarium and saw sharks being fed, and lots more fish and learnt some amazing facts but I am not going to go into all that, save to say its a myth that sea snakes can’t bite; they are very deadly and they can bite, but they choose not to, they are very placid and to prove it the guide put his hand in the water and picked one up! Rather him than me, even though they don’t bite!
We also had to visit the stromolites – they are a must see, apparently, so I will share some photos with you, try not to get too excited hey.
No, seriously, they were quite interesting as they look like rocks but are actually living organisms, weird.
Well, that’s Denham done, so off we head towards Kalbarri and oh my goodness the wild flowers were amazing as we drove along. Not many trees, actually there were no trees, just scrubby shrubby bushes but the flowers were spectacular.
So we set up camp at Kalbarri and a couple that we had met at Carnavon joined us here for a few days. Our friends from Broome are now a long way ahead of us, which is a shame as we won’t catch up with them again, until we visit them in Adelaide on our way home.
See you in Kalbarri
