??? ??, 2007
Scuba diving in Exmouth sadly came to end. I was hoping to wait several months to snorkel with the whale sharks (migrate to exmouth March/April to rest and feed) but I had continue on down the coast towards Perth. I caught a ride with my friend Tony (An abnoxious prima dona German girl named Susannah joined us...she begged Tony for a ride and he felt bad and included her. The stingy girl refused to contribute any money towards fuel for the entire trip! That really pissed me off and I totally told her off which didn't help so much as relieve my frustration...) On the way to Perth we stopped at Coral Bay which is another snorkeling paradise but a bit more touristy than Exmouth. We were only there for one day and in that time I got offered a job as a snorkeling guide...unfortunately it never quite worked out as the boat I was supposed to work on broke down....very sad. The best part of Coral Bay was off roading in Tony's 4wd in the sand dunes. At one point we got stuck up hill on a large sand dune leaning heavily to one side. I thought the car was going to roll over and was well quite scared. To Tony it was no big deal...he just told us to get out and start digging sand out from under the tires (which we did very dutifully). After that he just let out air from the tires and wollah the truck slowly but surely made it up the hill.
