    Wildlife Sanctuary

    January 11, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Op de terugweg camperen wij bij een Wildlife Sanctuary. De dieren zijn fantastisch, we worden begroet door nieuwsgierige emoes. In de ochtend voeren we de Emoes, Kangeroos, vogels, varkens, eenden en kippen. Vir wordt bevriend met een zwarte kaketoe die nog maar een poot heeft. Hij gaat op z’n schouder ging zitten en wil er vervolgens niet meer af. Tijdens het ontbijt komt Raymond een kleine kangeroo die door mensen is opgevoed bij Sabrina op schoot zitten om geknuffeld te worden en valt bijna in haar armen in slaap. Na ons ontbijt vertrekken we met verse eieren en we gaan op weg naar het zuidwesten van Australie.Read more

    Gregory-------- Pink Lakes

    August 14 in Australia ⋅ 🌧 17 °C

    Although it was rather cloudy with only spurts of sun, I managed to capture some pics. The lagoon is 70 square klms most of it lying a few metres below sea level. It is separated from the Indian Ocean by a beach barrier ridge & dune system. Why??, you ask is it Pink??. It boasts a pink hue created by presence of carotenoid -producing algae Dunliella Salina , a source of B- carotene, a food-colouring agent & source of Vitamin A .Read more

    "Ich will ans Meer...

    November 10, 2015 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

    ...mehr will ich nicht!!" Diese Zeilen kennen sicher alle die mit den Kindern auf dem Taschenlampenkonzert waren. Wir haben Sie heute in jeder Lautstärke, Tonlage und Intensität gehört... Und das immer wieder! 😂 Und genau so haben wir's gemacht! Nachdem wir den Jurian Beach verlassen haben stopt unser Cruiser nach knapp 100km Küstenstrasse in dem kleinen Küstenörtchen Dongara an einem Strand zu einer Portion Fish&Chips und einer Spielplatz-Verschnaufpause. Von dort aus ist das nächste Ziel kurz hinter Geraldton der Drummond Cove Caravan Park. Die Loblieder im Internet sind nicht übertrieben: wir genießen den späten Nachmittag in einem sehr liebevoll gebauten Pool, Leo tobt sich auf einem Spielplatz - wieder einmal direkt neben unserer Camp Site - aus und wir genießen unter den Bäumen einen fantastischen Blick auf die über der Küste untergehende Sonne. Es war eine gute Entscheidung hier einen Zwischenstop einzulegen!!Read more
