Day 20 Monkey Mia

I got up early to enjoy a spectacular sunrise over the water. Peace and quiet by myself. I think we are a little ahead of the bulk of the Grey Nomads, we were told they are a bit slower this year because of the cyclones that were off the north WA coast a few months ago. I hope it continues as it. The man at the dolphin feeding said at Easter one year they had 750 people at the feeding. That would have been ridiculous, I don’t think there are that many people staying here at the moment. The camping area is fairly full, a lot of them are here for the fishing though. The bungalows look fairly deserted.

More dolphin feeds, missed the first one but at the subsequent feeds the boys, and then I were again chosen. As was everyone at those feeds as with about 20-25 fish being given out and only about 40 people everyone who wanted to had a go. At the next feed Ben was chosen again, this time he handballed it off to the little girl next to him. Her dad took too many photos too. It must be contagious.

We went for our afternoon cruise today and glad we delayed it from yesterday. I think we managed to see all the marine life of Shark Bay. Tiger sharks, a massive manta ray – so beautiful gliding through the water, Loggerheard turtles, dugongs and of course more dolphins.
