Got to the 4x4 place and had to spend ages going through all the gear and checking everything was working and marking off problems with the car etc etc. Hit the road and headed for the barge to take us to the island. The barge was nice and gave good views of the island en route. Disembarked and hit the sand tracks which were good fun, really bumpy and scared some people overly. Shortly after getting there the other group we were with got themselves stuck in the sand because they could not get themselves in to 4wd so we got them out. Then had some lunch and headed off for a walk to a lake. The walk took forever but revealed a nice little lake which was a sun trap. Stayed there a while and headed off to the campsite. Got to drive down the beach which was fun and fast and had to watch out for planes which also landed on the beach.
Cooked dinner and had a fire and had a few drinks around the fire. It was not the fun party place i had been led to believe by others. Also sleeping in a tent is terrible, so uncomfortable and reminded me of why i hated it so much as a child. I may have said it before but this time i am certain that i will never go camping again, i cannot see any merit in it.
The last day we packed up and went to Lake McKenzie which is a bit of a highlight, it was a very beautiful lake with sand around it, however it was very gloomy and even started to rain so i did not manage to get in to the water at any point of the trip and we left early because it was no fund being on a beach in the raind and just waited at th barge port to go home having thoroughly had enough of camping hopped on and got back but without the other group who we had lost and it turned out they had radiator problems and were fined for being late back, we had nothing to pay which was good.
