Photo of the week
Hello to everyone from the road. We are currently on our way to Monkey Mia to swim in the ocean with wild dolphins and see them being fed. Apparently the dolphins are completely wild and choose to go to Monkey Mia to feed and play.
We spent two days in Perth, due to a slight delay with our Adventure Camper. We took advantage of the delay and explored not only the Perth CBD and Subiaco, but we also ventured out to the coast to Freemantle. In Freemantle we taste tested both the nice breweries and relaxed. Below is one of the tasting samplers we got at the Monk Brewery.
On the way back to the CBD we walked through the wonderful King Park. We started our walk through the wild outback portion of the park in the late afternoon. When we finished our walk through the park and came out into the manicured portion, it was dark and unfortunately I left my tripod at the hotel and couldn’t take very good photos of the night skyline.
We have been on the road from Perth for only three days but we have already seen heaps of amazing sites. One of the first major sites was the Pinnacles about 260 km north of Perth. We drove on and photographed the Beekeepers National Park white sand dunes, which get their colour from the lime that is found in this area.
Today we had made a side trip to another country, actually a principality, known as Hut River Principality. A little know country that is surrounded by the rest of Australia. We got to meet with Prince Leonard who gave us an explanation and tour of his Principality. We made sure to get our passports stamped going in and out of the Principality. If you are curious and want more information about Prince Leonard or his small country, click here.
Next we arrive in Monkey Mia and then head north to Exmouth and the Ningaloo Reef to swim with Whale Sharks. This is one of only a handful of places in the world where a person can swim with Whale Sharks. Keep watching for more updates and photos.
