Monkey Mia

Today we drove 25kms to Monkey Mia to see the dolphins but unfortunately we found out when we arrived that we needed to be there at 7.45am for the briefing and then the feeding takes place anytime up till 12 o’clock. However the dolphins were still there cruising up and down without being fed so we were well satisfied.

Just so we didn’t feel the trip was without wildlife up close and personal, there was an Australian Pelican propped on the beach just waiting for his photo to be taken and striking a number of poses including an acrobatic one worthy of a gymnastic which we didn’t manage to capture. None the less we reckon these are pretty good too. For those interested in facts the bill will hold up to 10 litres, and they can live for up to 25 years in the wild.

We know you are probably sick of hearing how beautiful the water is here but that’s just the way it is and we drove out along a lagoon on our way back and the water is so clear you can see the small fish all along the shore.

Off tomorrow, after thinking how lucky we were to get a spot here.  The park is completely booked now, and today they filmed an episode of a WA Travel Show and talked to the people next door who are here for three months each year, not a bad gig, but there is still so much more to see so we’re happy to be on the road again.
