Middle Lagoon and Cape Leveque Days 5,6 and 7

The wind has still been blowing but we have managed to spend a lot of time in and around the water. We drove down to Middle Lagoon on Sunday and found a lovely lagoon, had the whole beach to ourselves and the kids and Annie had a great time snorkelling. The water was fairly clear and they could see lots of fish and other creatures on the ocean floor. There was a spot of fishing also and Harry caught a Tusk fish.
The late afternoon/evening fishing is exciting and Harry landed the Tiger shark previous, about a metre and a half. We have caught a range of fish so far, golden trevally, tusk fish, blackspot cod, red throated emperor/sweetlip, tiger and 7 gill sharks, queenfish, long toms, and there have been a few bust offs, both boys had large fish on that were either taken by sharks or cut off by the reef but the adrenalin was going strong.
There is a rough/fishing beach and a more gentle snorkelling and swimming beach here and the kids love it all.
The boys have found some young kids to play with on occasions and Ruby has spent a bit of time reading in the van or writing letters.
Helen has managed a couple of paintings so far which look great.
Dinner is usually at Helen and Harry's establishment as there is a verandah and plenty of room for all.
Having a great time and will be sad when our time here is over and we head down south for the next adventures. There are so many places here we haven't even seen that look just as spectacular as the Cape itself.

Until next time, may your news be as fun as ours,
