    Denham

    October 10, 2016 in Australia

    Windig hier und trotzdem halten die Häuser stand - auch solche, die aus Muscheln vom Shell Beach(Bilder 1-4) bestehen.
    Dort gibts Muschelberge von bis zu 9m Höhe!
    Wieder was gelernt...Danke für die Aufmerksamkeit!

    Shark Bay/Monkey Mia

    August 9, 2017 in Australia

    Stayed 5 nights at Denham in an overflow section of the Shark Bay Caravan Park. Very busy around Shark Bay so was all we could get, but actually preferred the overflow as it had plenty of room and ocean views.

    Started working as a contractor from here and happy to say it seems to be going well. Just did 2 days to start off with...we'll see how it progresses.

    Spent an early morning at Monkey Mia with the dolphins that come in to the beach to be hand fed. Incredible story...rangers only feed them 10% of their diet so that they still learn how to hunt for themselves. Historically, many dolphins perished from losing the ability to hunt for fish after being hand fed too much.

    Splashed out on a 3 hour cruise which sailed out of Monkey Mia checking out dolphins, turtles, and dugong in the sea grass beds. Marg even got in the boom net behind the boat on the way home. We had a sunset cruise thrown in, so did that the next day which was fantastic.

    Really liked Shell Beach, one of only 2 beaches in the world covered entirely in shells. Spectacular!

    Robert & Karen caught up with us here...great to touch base again. Whilst we have to move on, I'm sure we'll be catching up again down the track.

    Day 52

    June 1 in Australia

    On our way to Denham, we called into Carnarvon. We passed many banana plantations. I missed out on getting a photo of their iconic landmark "The Big Banana".
    We visited the HMAS Sydney memorial and then the One Mile Jetty. The jetty is closed due to needing major repairs.
    We then went into the Carnarvon Space and Technology Museum. What a great place. As well a housing original machinery used to support NASA's programs in the 60's and 70's, it also has videos, photos and stories. We also enjoyed playing with their extra activities. We are now set up in Denham.Read more

    Day 53

    June 2 in Australia

    After a disappointing start to the day bacause we were too late to see the dolphins at Monkey Mia (they don't advertise that you need to be there really early), we set off to see Denham and its surrounds. First stop was the Thong Shack, a wooden structure where people attach thongs. Then on to Shell Beach. Instead of sand, the beach is covered in tiny shells. It stretches 120 kilometre and they are up to 10 metres deep. Unfortunately there is no shade anywhere.
    Onto Goulet Bluff where we sat and ate our lunch in the shade of the car, and then went four wheel driving up the bluff. Good driving Cheryl. We called into a few lookouts, walked the boardwalk at Eagle Bluff and marvelled at the amazing views.
    One of the roads was very wide with the white road markers nowhere near the edge. I think a couple of them confused Cheryl :-) :-).
    We called into the Denham Aquarium where we sat and enjoyed the view and an icecream.
    A great day.

    Day 54

    June 3 in Australia

    Cheryl, Rod and I drove to Monkey Mia this morning for the Dolphin Experience. It was great. We were asked to stand ankle deep in the water in a straight line and to talk to the dolphins when they swam near us. No touching. The ranger spoke about the 5 dolphins that are part of the experience, as well as giving us many facts and figures. We were then asked to leave the water, and various people were chosen to go back in the water and feed a fish to the dolphin. We did this experience 3 times as we waited to go on our 3 hour cruise looking for turtles and dugongs. We were lucky enough to see both. We also went on a Sundown Magic Sail, but there was no wind, so no sailing, and many clouds, so no visable sunset. We still enjoyed the ride.Read more
