The magic of nature's beauty was immeditate. Just 40 metres from our site was a huge shady tree. Camping beneath was a young family of four. Their excited three year old couldn't wait to announce the presence of this frogmouth owl nesting above their site.
Our site also had the advantage of a thick bank of trees between us and the ocean. We were lulled to sleep at night by the gentle sounds of the waves ebbing and flowing and woke, a tad early, to a glorious dawn chorous, led by the laughter of the kookaburra.
Once the van was sorted we took the 100 m walk to the beach. On this and each subsequent visit, the seagulls had us enthralled by their antics.
Here they are arguing over a grape that had been placed by someone on this impressive sand sculpture.
And the winner is .........
If only a quiet spot could be found to enjoy it!
Now I'll just share the 'magic' we found, through the following images.
Non venomous carpet snake.
And on our final evening, the seagulls continued to entertain.
So much 'magic', I couldn't help but jump for joy!
I would love to read your comment.
