Where The Desert Meets The Sea

Well today I thought I had booked a morning tour, turns out the booking system at the Shark Bay Visitors Centre isn’t great but the kind Janine at Naturetime Tours took pity on me & took me on an afternoon tour of Francois Perron National Park but first I wandered around town, took all of 5 mins to visit the shops, followed by a paddle in the ocean (not sure how I feel about swimming after learning about stonefish & all the other nasties at the aquarium yesterday).

I sweated it out at camp (the thought of attempting to put my bathers on my sweaty body was a workout I didn’t feel like)

Before Janine picked me up and away we went into the red. The contrast between the red dirt & the ocean was just amazing & the photos do not do it justice.

Janine was full of information (just don’t ask me to remember any of it) so the time on the road was filled in with chatter. She did manage to find someone else so I wasn’t the only one on the tour. The highlight also the lowlight we found a thorny mountain devil however he had been run over {insert sad face} he was still breathing but I don’t think he would make it.

Last stop we just viewed Little Lagoon because how amazing was the combination of still water & the sunset.
