MONDAY 30 OCTOBER     CORAL BAY

It was a sunny day, though with some cloud.

We snorkelled in the morning. There was quite a current running today, and it was hard work to swim back to the start of the drift.

I took some more underwater photos, but it was a bit sandy and dull for the best results – yesterday’s wind has stirred the sea up.

After lunch, went for a drive, south along the coast and through Old Cardabia station country. It was the typical semi-arid scrub and saltbush country of these parts.

The coast itself became quite rugged. We parked at one point and went walking, down a hill to the rocky shore,  on a foot track,  to get a good look at it. We didn’t see any other vehicles during the couple of hours we were out there.

Tea was Mongolian lamb stir fry with rice.
