MONDAY 11 SEPTEMBER     EIGHTY MILE BEACH

I was up early and went for a long walk on the beach, even seeing the sunrise, which was beautiful.

The wind had gotten up during the night, and it was very windy in the morning, but dropped in the afternoon.

I printed the letter for friends that I’d written all about our Kimberley trip. That took over an hour – very fiddly.

John emptied the fuel from the two jerrycans that were on the back of the van, into Truck.

I did some more beadwork. Made a bracelet for R – black and ginger beads, with carnelian chips. Also did one for P – opaque blue beads with old gold antique looking metal highlights.

We went for a walk on the beach and watched the tide come in – from a long way out.

The picture tells a story….

The park emptied out a lot today.

I took some more sunset photos. It was not as good as last night’s, but still pretty special.

John had reheated fried rice leftovers for tea. I had a little tin of tuna. We both had some salads, and some rockmelon – it was lovely – lots of taste.

What a pity we couldn’t have stayed here to watch the Olympics!
