Yes Rob. Fekkin' millenials. Thing is, there is also very likely a newborn baby in the pouch too - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lCKc8tURtc
On with the tour. After two nights at Geehi I pushed on over the mountains to the coast, meeting up with Jeff and others at Picnic Point - another favourite camping spot in a National Park. There are no signs to help find this place - the locals remove them to keep it as secret as possible, bless 'em. Here's a pic of one of the beaches taken on a previous trip:
And for ZM here's another 'mutant rabbit' mother, a wallaby this time, also with joey:
We spent two nights there then moved on to Wingan Inlet on the south coast. It was getting hotter so a good shady camping site was very welcome.
Jeff is a keen fish botherer. I am too, but am more interested in catching fish that happen to be involved in a feeding frenzy rather than going to actually find them. The Waders of the Fisherman:
The local inhabitants include these guys - the Goanna gang:
They were pretty useful for dishwashing and site cleaning services. They lurked all day - the largest was around 1.5m (5') long. Not very nice animals but apparently good for keeping snakes away.
We did two nights at Wingan. Very nice place with a broad estuary that appeared to be completely devoid of fish. The road in is 34kms of quite rough dirt with some scary wheel-swallowing pot-holes, so gentle riding is recommended. Here's a pic taken on the way out when we stopped for a breather:
More to follow later ...
