The annex next door blew down a poor couple from St Ives arrived just before the storm hit had just finished setting up & the wind totally destroyed their tent so they drove home straight away
While I was sitting outside eating my cereal I spotted a couple of dolphins swimming out the front of our camp. I ran for the camera and captured some photos in the distance. They must of been feeding as they only surfaced very briefly, but they hung around for a couple of hours.
Before we knew it the storm has come back again and it pelted down. The poor kangaroos sheltered under some trees beside us and one cheeky kangaroo even joined us under the pagola which was now starting to flood. Not what I call happy camping. Finally when the rain eased we decided to head up to the local restaurant to get out of the weather. Lunch was delicious, I had freshly caught Flathead, fries and salad & Bella had wedges. During lunch we made an executive decision when watching angry dark clouds heading across us again to get some dry accommodation. We scored a lovely small pool side Villa for an extra $60 for the night money well spent for a hot shower, kettle for a long overdue coffee and PowerPoint's to charge our appliances we couldn't charge in the rain.
We quickly packed up as fast as possible before the next downpour hit
A solid roof over our heads is bliss we both soaked the days mud and rain away under a hot shower, oh heaven. We spent the remaining hours reading, uploading photos & relaxing. Tea was boring Nachos and I think it will be an early night. No Internet and phone coverage certainly forces you to enjoy nature even if it's not what you had in mind. It will be sad to say goodbye tomorrow to those 100s of adorable Kangaroos but we will be well rested after tonight's comfortable Villa.
