We Are Not In Nannup Anymore

Too hot for us in Nannup – 40+Degrees Celsius is not fun even with an air conditioner, so this morning we packed up and moved camp – seems like every other camper had the same idea  – Augusta was packed out, we got the last powered site at West Bay Caravan Park.  A cool 25 degrees here and a fresh sea breeze.

A Quick Dip and A Rock Climb

Bob the Dog is enjoying his holiday in Augusta. There are two caravan parks in the town run by the local shire, one is close to the river, the other (Flinders Bay Caravan Park) is a little further out of town, close to the beach and is dog friendly. Bob the Dog loves this town, the walks along the river and on the beach. Today he enjoyed a quick dip in the ocean and then a scramble up some rocks where he enjoyed the magnificent view 🙂

First Trip – A Success

We had a great first trip away in our caravan. We have progressed from a camper, added a tent  when we got the dog and now have a caravan.  It is so easy I cant think why we didn’t go this option before.  Augusta was out destination – a beautiful coastal town – great accessible  river; to walk along the banks of, to paddle a kayak, to fish, to kite surf…then there is the ocean where at the right time you can whale watch, fish, swim, surf and just generally enjoy the fresh air and the views.

We enjoyed this peaceful escape , especially walking along the beach and the the caravan park BBQ at sunset.

What a view!

What a view!

Bob particularly enjoyed finding smelly disgusting things to roll in at the beach – he would nose dive into some sort of decaying sea life…we forgot the doggie wash so he had to settle for a bucket bath in a mild “green” dish-washing detergent – his coat is so shiny and soft now! ( and is smell free)   Next trip we will make sure we take a small hose specially for this purpose.  🙂
