Day 56. Bremer Bay

Just like a big pool, only better!

The day was glorious, the sun was shining, there was no wind and the temperature was in the high 20's, we are loving it. 

We had a late brekkie again, and hung around the caravan and watched the V8's race 2 on the TV outside. With such great weather, I reluctantly decided to knock over another load of washing. Scarlett was playing hide and go seek in the park with some kids for the better part of the morning, but unfortunately they then left, and didn't come back for the rest of the day.

After the racing on TV, we decided to go to the beach and let Scarlett get some snorkeling practice in. The water was amazing, it was so clear and smooth, it was just like we were in a big pool only better. It couldn't have been more perfect conditions for Scarlett's confidence to practice.

There was a swimming pontoon about 100mts out into the bay, so we decided to snorkel out to it. Because of the waters clarity it felt so shallow, when it was probably about 5mtrs deep. There were fish everywhere, and Shane was wishing he brought his fishing rod. Scarlett did so well, she loved the water and didn't want to get out.

We climbed up onto the pontoon and had a little sun bake, while Shane went over to the rocks to look for Leafy Sea Dragon's, they are supposedly found in this area. With no success he returned and we took turns jumping off the pontoon into the water. Unfortunately just as we arrived at the pontoon the underwater camera batteries died, so I have no pics from this point on sorry.

We came back to the van all very tired. We had showers, washed out all our gear, and had a chicken salad for lunch. The afternoon was then spent with Scarlett doing craft, me catching up on Desperate Housewives over the Internet, and Shane watching the F1 on TV outside. We managed to fit in an ice cream break from the park's kiosk too. We normally get a craving after dinner, but the kiosk closes at 5, so we are usually too late.

After a very relaxing afternoon, we decided to have an early dinner and go for a walk around the park. The sites here are huge, and about half the park is dedicated to permanent residents. We found a mob of kangaroos up in the back corner, and Scarlett tried to approach them by pretending she had some food in her hand. They took off, and wouldn't let her get anywhere near them. She was less than impressed, as most of the places she has seen kangaroos at have been very tame.

We are working on Scarlett's treasure map this evening, she has been developing it all afternoon. The obsession of the week is pirates. This might have something to do with the fact that Shane let her watch 'The Pirates of the Carribean'.....
