So, you haven’t heard from me for a while and some of you are wondering why.
Well, you see, it’s like this: Way back in Kalbari NP, I rolled my ankle badly. Had it X-rayed and luckily there’s no fracture 🙂 However, it’s now been five weeks and it’s still swollen and aches if I walk around a bit. The warm days here- 29 degrees Celsius (84F) is not helping 😦
Also too, we’ve been in Exmouth now for four weeks as we came here for a caving conference. Remember, Mr Oz is a keen caver and I’m glad to say, it’s all over now as it was pretty full on.
So, the first thing we did was to snorkel with Whale Sharks at Ningaloo Reef. If you haven’t done that, it HAS to go on your bucket list! It’s UNREAL !!! Whale Sharks are the biggest fish in the world – some have been reported as being 18 metres (60 feet) long!
The photos below taken during the snorkel were taken by the underwater photographer and Marine Biologist – Catherine McKelvie.
The rest of these photos were taken by yours truly. I have to say the day was magic from start to finish! Just when you thought the day couldn’t get any better, along came this ‘out of this world’ sunset!
And just to top it off, when we arrived on dry land, we were greeted with this!
The end of an exceptional day 🙂
You can snorkel independently in a myriad of reef beaches and bays along Ningaloo Marine Park close to Cape Range National Park.
Talking of Cape Range NP, here is a glimpse into some of the canyons there.
This is it, as a catch up post. Too much and not enough has been going on, so hopefully I’ll get back on the straight and narrow after this. OK, so slowly does it for me until this ankle heals up. See you next week – Wi-Fi reception permitting 🙂
I’ll keep writing to a minimum and give you links to places so it’s easy reference for you to look up if you’re interested in a particular location.
As we’re travelling around Australia for X amount of months, I’ll keep the Hump Day Post (HDP) (on Wednesdays) for our journey and will continue to take part in the Weekly Photo Challenge (on Saturdays) – where possible. I’ll repeat this every week, just in case you’ve just joined me 🙂
