ExplorOz - David & Michelle

David and I found a shore dive back along the 4WD track we'd come along yesterday called The Lagoon. A mud-map was drawn for us at the dive shop and we headed out there with enough gear for 2 dives.

No one had warned us that the track was incredibly sandy and after getting bogged, we had to let down our tyres. Thankfully, we didn't take the trailer or it would have been impossible. We passed a 4WD parked off the track and saw its owners down at The Lagoon. The Lagoon is a sheltered bay but the dive site was a 300m swim out to a ledge. We made it out there and had a fantastic dive. Lots of coral, tons of big snapper, moray eels, humbugs, wrasse, egg cowries, nudibranchs, clams, a large manta ray and other good stuff! We had a 62 minute dive. Later, we lay on the beach and talked with the couple who had left their vehicle behind in the dunes.

At the end of the day we gave our new friends, Tracy and Cameron, a lift back over the dunes and then met them at their accommodation at the Coral Bay Resort for a few drinks at the bar. Cameron has a large boat and has invited us to Rottnest Island diving, fishing, craying and prawning when we get to Perth for New Years Eve. But we think Neville and Katrina are also expecting us to go out on their boat to Rotto - oh to so have so many friends in WA!

Tonight's dinner was just penne pasta with a tin of chilli tuna. It was good though after a tiring day in the sun.
