Coral Bay was beautiful - shame we couldn't say the same about the weather. It's the kind of place where you need hot sunshine to enjoy the beach and snorkeling. When we first arrived the weather was lovely and we had a great day and a half on the beach, swimming and snorkeling. There were some beautiful fish. Then it got a bit cloudy and not so warm. Pete and Jan, our Aussie friends, arrived on our site and we spent a day 4x4 driving around the sand dunes and beaches with them - great fun in their landrover. We had to rescue some guys who had got their 4x4 stuck on the beach with the tide rapidly coming in. Rob and Pete got a special towing strop and pulled them free, just in the nick of time. Minutes later the tide was over the car's tracks.
Later that same day we drove in the landrover further up the coast and Rob and I saw a huge black wildcat - about 4 x the size of a domestic cat. A local ranger told us that the feral cats can grow to this size
We are planning our 'big trip' together. We hope to leave at the end of Oct/mid November and will be travelling for 12/18 months. We start in New Zealand, then Oz, then South America. Can't wait!... full info
