Day 39. 80 Mile Beach

We decided that this was such a chilled out place and we would spend another day here.

In the morning Tom went down to the beach to try his hand at fishing, along with a lot of the other campers. The boys went too but I am pretty sure they spent the morning building elaborate cities in the sand not fishing. Tom had no luck, the boys had a ball. Tom has just told me the boys spent half of their time building cities and the rest of the time scaring away the fish in the water.

On returning from fishing, Patrick was discussing the lack of their success with our camping neighbour Peter. Peter was a fair bit more successful that morning and after his wife had cleaned and filleted his catch, we were supplied with more than enough fish to feed our family. We had it for dinner and it was delicious.

It was a very hot day so Tom and I thought a siesta in the shade was in order. The boys were a little less compliant especially with being quiet.

Back to the beach in the afternoon for much of the same; swimming, sand city creating, sunset and Tom taking photos.
