We awoke after an extremely windy night. The caravan was rocking in the breeze and it us surprising just how much it moves. We made the decision to stay another night in Exmouth but move into the Big 4 caravan park in town that had a bit more shelter, creature comforts and was closer to coffee. We arrived at the "new" park at 9.15 am which must have set a new early arrival record. Our new setting was much more pleasant with showers that didn't stink and a pool filled up.
Chloe and Emmy both got a horse in $2 Melbourne Cup sweep. Chloe was lucky enough to win $30 with Green Moon's surprise win. Emmy was 'happy' for her big sister!
Next we headed back to the snorkelling beaches in Cape Range National Park some 45 kilometres away. If you are staying in Exmouth be prepared to travel to snorkel. You also go through a ranger's station and pay $11 per car each time. We drove to the furtherest destination of the very aptly named Sandy Bay to see a magnificent shallow and sandy beach filled with turquoise water. There was no coral so we drove back to Turquoise Bay as we knew it was safe for the girls. The first drift loop was completed with no wind but then all of sudden the breeze sprang up. Luckily, we could shelter around the corner and see our fish friends from yesterday again. Chloe was having lunch near the water's edge and some bread crumbs accidentally fell in. The circling fish quickly engulfed the whole lot. At one stage we were swimming with a school of a 100 fish who were very happy with our presence. The water is beautiful and teeming with fish life.
On our way back we stopped off for a fish at the Tantabiddi boat ramp. On my first cast I landed a flounder. I caught another three fish with one being a magnificent fish of some description. As I couldn't positively id it we threw back in.
We devoured some of Kelli's spag bol for tea and bunkered down for another windy night in the caravan.
