We got a bit sporty at Moore River, Guilderton.
In the van we travel with our putters & some golf balls. Guilderton just happens to have a a mini golf course. We had two rounds of golf. First round Ian scored 2 holes in 1. Second round we each had a hole in one. Ian won convincingly so Deborah had to buy the fish & chips for dinner.

Thursday morning we headed off to Dongara for a very wet drive.
We arrived and set up in amongst another 14 New Age Vans & there owners. The park puts on nibbles for the park guests which we all partook. They also put on pancakes Sunday morning at 9am. We hope to hit the road around 8.30 so we have asked our fellow travellers to eat our share.

The Big 4 Caravan Park is right on the beach. The beach is now no longer there. A big rock wall has been put in place to prevent beach erosion. Each night we fall asleep to the waves crashing on the rocks. It's quite relaxing. Close by is the Harbour for the fishing & crayfish boats. Each day we walked along the foreshore as the sun was shining each day, it was beautiful & warm. Of a night we had a few showers.

Deborah certainly took in the sun and sights.

And the evenings started off fine.

Recently the Shire of Irwin has introduced fees for camping on Indian Ocean Drive.

We had a drive around Dongara. Ian found the library. We also visited the local opportunity shop.
