Day trip to Sir Isaac Point

Last night we were hit by high winds and rain at our Morgans Landing campsite.

I thought this site would be more protected from the south westerly winds, but the 30-40 kmh winds and the low brush meant a rocky night. Our too few sand pegs just held on to the sandy site. We'd need to move on in the morning if this keeps up.

Then after a sleepless night, the morning started off calm and sunny. Wow. The world is good again.

We decided to spend the day exploring the western end of coffin bay national park.

The patrol trundled along the tracks. I admired the throaty sound the snorkel makes on the turbo diesel. The kids laughed as the emus darted down the track in front of the car. Lots of emus.

At Sir Isaac Point, the southern ocean pushed its relentless waves at the rocks. I love the power and disorganised forces that the southern ocean has.

We had lunch at the nearby campsite, which was more sheltered than I would have expected. And surprisingly it was empty.

A relaxed drive back to our Morgans Landing camp has us once again camping alone.

Although we saw 2 cars today, we're amazed how few people we're seeing once 4wd is required.
