OUR BIG TRIP
DAY 126 Monday 12th August
Early rise, van pack up and depart the Carnarvon Caravan Park heading south toward Shark Bay. We had decided at Happy Hour Sunday night that we would use a budget camp for tonight, but arriving at the camp it was, ( a) too early, and ( b) not quite where we wanted to be. This camp was at the top of a huge hill, and if wind came up we could possibly end across in Alice !! ? A quick call to the camp we had booked for Tuesday and Wednesday nights at Denham to check availability of a site for one extra early night. Site was OK, but without power. ” No problems” we said and headed for Shark Bay and Denham. Lunch was had at the turn off to Shark Bay at the Overland Roadhouse. On arrival at the Caravan Park we booked in and sited the vans in a temporary area until tomorrow when we will move into a camp site with power.
A town walk was next on the agenda and the Info Centre was used to help workout some form of itinerary for the next few days. Naturally Monkey Mia was suggested, along with Shell Beach and a vast array of Bluffs to visit. As we will be moving the vans into their correct power sites in the morning, Monkey Mia will need to wait till Wednesday. We will arrange the programme to suit. Took a short drive around the back of the town on the way back to the Shark Bay Caravan Park before a fairly cool happy hour. The wind had come up some and indicated a wise choice in not using the budget camp on the hill top.
Tea was had a little earlier than normal and then bed. It may be a good sleep away from all that heat for a change.
