Still no Monkey

The âwell restedâ didnât exactly happen as planned, it seems the people in the campervan next door donât understand the âno noiseâ after 10pm policy and continued to speak loudly and play music well after midnight. Luckily Iâll sleep through anything, but alas poor Wendy canât and was in no condition to get up at 6.30 for the dolphins, so we slept through to our usual 8am.
We had intended to go on a 4x4 wildlife tour today but the company already had a full compliment of 6 people going, so we had to do something else. I did pick up a leaflet for Tiger Shark spotting, but it was 4x4 based and not from a boat so all the âJawsâ type adrenaline action wasnât likely to happen.
If in doubt, just fall back on something you know.
Things have gotten very relaxed since leaving Broome, we just paid our $35 for 3 hours, got pointed in the right direction for the wildlife and off we went. Itâs a good job we werenât just there for a cheap kayak, otherwise we could have had the thing in the back of a van and away before theyâd known any different.
Once again Wendy continued with just dipping the paddles in the water, something she still denies so I took the opportunity to video her in the actâŚ..letâs see her deny it now.
There was a strong wind at our back on the way to our destination, very nice and it hid the fact that Wendy wasnât doing anything (my opinion).
We beached the kayak at some red cliffs about 1 hour into our hire period, just after weâd passed a couple who had also hired a kayak that seemed to be getting very naughty in a cove (Iâll say no more).
When we reached the resort there were 2 dolphins playing around the moored boats right in front of us, so we paddled over and followed them around until they decided theyâd had enough and disappeared out into the blue. Whilst they were around Wendy and I did chuckle at a large German bloke in the water trying to get close enough to the dolphins for his wife who was onshore to get a picture. Weâre not sure exactly what he was saying but he didnât look happy and was probably stamping his feet under the water.
After lunch we went back to the beach for our next adventure, we did discuss hiring a kayak again but Wendy said sheâd run out of steam.
