Today started dark and gloomy and turned out to be really hot. I think I got burned again!
Midget enjoyed an early rise and a fishing expedition with Steve on the jetty right in front of our campervan. After Midget enjoyed almost taking the head of a Yellow-Eyed something or other that was supposed to be a good eating fish. We managed to save it from her, before we threw it back, but not before she ate the rest of Steve’s bait. She’s such a gutz!
We then enjoyed a walk into town and Midget met Bob and his brother, and we saw another staffie along the way. Its certainly a doggy town. Its really friendly and interesting, but its just a shame there is so much holiday houses as it really creates a great hole in the town, as we’ve found living in Mandurah. Its really hard to build a community when you’ve never even met some of your neighbours.
Eventually we prised ourselves away from the bay and headed to Bennalong Bay and Bay of Fires – Travel Magazine; Conde de Naste (have I got that in any way correct?) voted this the best bay in the world! Not to mention Lonely Planet! So we trundled on out there to find the lovely white sandy beaches they’d promised as well as no camping throughout the town. But there were 5 camping spots between the two towns on a lovely pristine beach that were listed in the CAMPS4 book, but naturally they were chock-a-block and stuffed full of oversized caravans and 5th wheelers. So we decided to head back to the privacy of St Helen’s.
Midget was happy either way as she loved the fishing and beach where ever we were. Enjoyed the hot afternoon sun on the lovely soft grass under a shady tree.
