Where I stayed
Coral Coast Tourist Park Carnarvon

I arrived in Carnarvon on Saturday and decided to stay in a caravan park for 3 days to "chill out". It was a great park, beautiful new ablution blocks, not sure why they are no longer called “amenities” however, they both do the same thing…wash you! It's within walking distance to the shops and the water (about 10 mins) the council is upgrading the area and the access to the beach was sealed off.

After settling in I took the dogs for a walk down to the beach area and finally found an access further on where they ran wild.

Lola is obviously blind, as she dislikes water and she ran straight into it and was up to her neck before she realised it, maybe because there weren’t any waves???, who knows, but she didn’t seem to fussed about it.

I had a little misadventure with a glass of wine the first night there, it fell off the window ledge and spilled all over me and my bed, so glad I wasn’t using the computer at the time though, bed smelt like a winery. Hic!

The three days were plagued by strong winds (28kms/h) and gusts reaching 50kms/h at one stage I had to move the van from side on into the wind, to face on, as it was rock’n so much, almost like cyclone weather…

My face looks like a cooked lobster straight out of the pan from the reverberation even though I was wearing my very “sexy” hat I still got burnt, or wind burnt not sure which.

Packed up this morning (Tuesday) and as I hadn’t check the town out other than a couple of long walks with the dogs thought…time to take in the sites before heading off. First stop Pelican Point, then One Mile Jetty and the Museum. The next point of interest I was a little dubious about seeing as it is called “The Chinaman Pool” and with all the bad luck I’ve had lately I wasn’t sure that going anywhere near anything to do with a “Chinaman” at this stage would be a good omen…guess time will tell if I did the right thing or not.

I am only 38kms down the road at a magical place, Bush Bay. It’s another 'freebie’ and there are literally dozens of vans of all shapes and sizes here, there are no ablution areas so those that camp here have to have their own shower and toilet, but I’m sure there are those that pee in the bush as there is an abundance of bushland to hide in. The dogs had a run as soon as I arrived and are now exhausted and asleep under the van, something they haven’t been able to do anywhere else as caravan parks insist they be tied up or inside so as not to annoy fellow campers…
