Sunset from the beach

If you haven’t heard of Monkey Mia before then it’s famous for having a local population of dolphins that will come right up to the beach at certain times for feeding and interaction with the crowds. I remember that the last time it was very crowded with people pushing for the best spots, which considering I’d just spent 10 hours with my knees crushed against the seat in front didn’t endear the place to me. This time I’ll be well rested* and ready with the sharp elbows.

 

Instead of doing our usual 10km hike up the beach we decided to just relax and have a swim. Whilst getting ready on the sand we saw a baby eagle ray just a metre or so from the edge of the water just casually swimming by, this was indeed a good place for marine life. You also could see the turtles near the jetty just surfacing for air before heading back down for more sea grass. I also saw something in the shallows that looked a cross between a ray and a shark, at the time I didn’t quite know what it was but now I know it to be a Shovel Nosed Ray (still part of the shark family though!).

 

The Emu invasion didn’t stop at Denham, they are very much part of the camp site and wonder around as if they own the place…..all very sweet to see the large ones and the little infants.
