Day 2 at Cape Leveque

A really scary night with the wind pounding the tree above the van, but we managed to make it through the night with the only damage being some loosened guy ropes.

An early start by the kids but the adults took a while to get going. Eventually we did and went to a Hatchery about 20 kms away and Banjo and Annie fed Barramundi by hand, and we all got to see and feel some fantastic creatures of the nearby waters.

The wind finally died down towards the end of the day and we had a nice little fishing session with the red cliffs and sunset as a truly spectacular backdrop. Harry skinned and cleaned and filleted the fish we caught and finally I managed to get in on the fish catching action.

We are hoping for a calm morning so we can do a bit of snorkellng on the nearby reefs.

As I write this I have a fruit bat making a racket above me and a gecko chirping away nearby. Anyone who was thinking about coming here should just do it. The area around the Cape is unusual and spectacular.

Movies and photos to follow.
