Welcome to Denham
Anne, notice the mosaic text with the words "welcome to Denham" all made out of broken tiles
Another picture postcard day in Denham. Blue cloudless skies, turquise water and so quiet. Overnight is still getting quite cool, or if you were to ask Sandy cold. With the clear mornings comes moisture on the tent which has a habit of dripping on the outside floor of the tent, which after a whilestarts sounding like a drum. Maybe this is the Denham water torture rather than the Chinese water torture 😉.
This morning saw the departure of Debbie and Steve who have headed for Carnarvon to seek professionalsad advice from a qualified autelectrician. Steve has a booking for 8:00 tomorrow morning. Hopefully they will get to the bottom of their flat caravan batteries and maybe even work out where Toyota have hidden the fog light relays.
Today has been a very cruisy day for Sandy and I. This morning was the usual routine of up and have breakfast whilst Sandy stayed in bed reading. In the meantime Steve and Debbie were packing up the caravan ready for their onward journey. After they had gone Sandy chose to stay back at the tent reading in the sunshine and as it turned out chatting with all and sundry who happened
to call past. For me I was off fishing again, and yes this time I can call it fishing. I actually caught one! Not exactly a legal size but at least there was movement on the end of the line 😉. I also took the opportunity to to a bit more sand driving around little lagoon and along the main beach. A very interesting spot for the water is so clear and there are very few people around.
For lunch we had decided that the Aquarium with its licensed restaurant overlooking the water would be the go....we got there too late at 1:30 the chef had packed up and gone home because there were no patrons. Not to be beaten we headed back to Denham, nothing open for lunch except the pub. We had a quick scan through the menu then were promptly advised that because the regular chef was away there was only a very limited menu, oh and the wine list also had to have a few removed.
After lunch a gentle walk around town before heading back to camp for a quiet drink before dinner. Tonight we will try out the BBQ on site here
at the park, before having an early night ready for packing up tomorrow for our drive up to Quobba Station where we are told the fishing is excellent as long as the sharks don't get the fish on the way in. I don't think I'll be going swimming there!
We also catch up with Steve and Debbie at Quobba Station, that is if Steve has the electrics sorted by then.
