On The Road Again, Just Couldn’t Wait To Get On The Road...

So the time came to leave the comfort of Carnarvon & head further north, I felt I had seen all I wanted to see.

I ducked into Coral Bay for lunch and a swim, I even went out so my shoulders were under water so nice.



Pretty unexciting drive, bit of roadworks & Exmouth seems busier than Carnarvon but here I am all settled, enjoying cocktail hour for the next few days.

Shaken Totally Not Stirred

Another day, another adventure this time a little further north up the coast but first a pic from last night


Bit of a lazy start, seriously it’s holidays and I headed off to check out the blow holes. Maybe venturing a little further closer than I should be (there were foreigners there) I stood in awe and just watched the waves crash on the red rocks & the occasional spout of water. Words cannot describe it if you haven’t seen it go see it.



Of course I didn’t time my selfies well I’m either smiling with a little to no spurt of water or I’ve got this pained look on my face.


Just a little further round the corner is a peaceful lagoon. I did attempt the practice my snorkelling but you know me don’t like to be out past waist deep so I packed it in & sat with my picnic lunch.



What wouldn’t be a trip to the blowholes without the obligatory King Waves Sign selfie.


Now I decided to do some shaking, rattling & rolling as I thought it would be interesting to head up the Gnarloo Road to Quobba, I’ll just suss out what’s up here. Well some of the corrugations were as deep as they were wide & usually coming up to a creast where you had no choice but to roll across the top. Anyway I got a bit north of Quobba took some photos & hoped the corrugations were better on the other side ... for the record there not.



Just a couple of locals I saw hanging out on the road.


To end the day the sunset at the Fascine

Next time I’ll take the bus

Someone had a bright idea to go hiking today...up a mountain.....well it was the best idea I’ve had all trip, by far the best activity we’ve done this trip (and it was down hill). We hiked along the old railway line (the line is long gone but the tunnels remain) under the peak of Snijeznica or 1234 as its 1234m in the Konavle Valley. The views over the valley, airport and villages were amazing, the legless lizard that looked like a snake not so amazing. Totally recommend the guys at Adventure Park Cadmos Village, these guys build the first treehouse in Croatia I’m packing my bags to move in now.



We took the opportunity to go to Cavtat instead of heading back to Dubrovnik, another great idea. We walked around the peninsula stopimg at bench’s to gaze out to sea. Even dipped our toes into the cold rocky sea, so refreshing. The popular way back to Dubrovnik is by ferry, great idea until the thunderstorm rolls over the mountains and over you in a boat, great when you don’t really like boats, next time I think I’ll take the bus.


Thumbs up to the refreshing water on our tired feet



You can write to me c/- my treehouse, private island, Dubrovnik, Croatia
