So we hastily set up in Quinninup Eco campground (not sure about the Eco part) and had our standard emergency late camp meal of spaghetti and canned meat sauce (delicious when you are starving and cold).

Dinner: We couldn't bear another meal at the local pub and since there was only one other restaurant option, Alex was allowed his favorite Yoghurt and ...
