Having ticked that off, we headed East to the coast and arrived at Seal Rocks mid afternoon. We looked at "Beach No 1" and we looked at "Boat Beach" and then we took the 3km drive over an unsealed (and very bumpy) road to Treachery Bay, which was indeed wild and remote
So we thought we ought to do Seal Rocks as well. We drove up to the lighthouse as we hoped we might get beer at the local store at Boat Bay on the way - wrong!! Seal Rocks were about 600 metres off the mainland at the lighthouse so there was absolutely no chance that we were going to see seals on them. But the location was beautiful - until it started to rain. As we ran for the car, Helen spotted bonus number two for the day. A small shoal/group/herd of dolphins just offshore. Big ones as well. We happily stood in the driving rain and watched them playing until they disappeared from view... Cracking!!
Back to the campsite for showers, food and a touch of goon. Only a couple of wild dingos to report here. We practiced our "stare them out" routine until we'd perfected it. They never had a chance of taking an arm off one of us!!!
A great day all in. Thanks for the tip Jane! UNTIL....... that night, I discovered the flaw in the "goon" concept! If you've googled it, you'll understand what I mean when I say, they squeak... But no goannas that night.... :-(
