Day 02: Sept 19
Woke up bright and early to birds chirping and the soothing sound of ocean waves crashing on the shore.
After breakfast, we decided that we would re-hike the same path as yesterday: East from Flinders Beach all the way to Main Beach and stop to swim along the way. Since we were walking through the same scenery as yesterday, I didn’t take as many photos!
Wee, wee, wee! Riding my invisible broomstick around Home Beach
Marking our presence!
I found lunch! Different kinds of molluscs!
While I was hunting for lunch, Mike decided to claim a secluded section of Deadman’s Beach as his own private beach. Just for the 2 of us!
That is my head, sticking out of the ocean
Closer look at the molluscs I found
New friends! Tickling my palm as they tried to slither away
Sand dune! Too bad we didn’t have anything to use to slide down with!
Bird of prey swooped down and stole an angelfish caught by a fisherman
Super calm fisherman
Lots of little crabs on all the beaches
Little critters all around if you stop to take a look!
Thought these flowers were quite interesting!
We finally made it down to Main Beach! The wind was crazy today and the waves were too large to safely go swimming… neither of us are surfers, haha!
Since we couldn’t swim at Main Beach, we walked back (so much walking) to Deadman’s beach for more swimming… and more crabs
We made it sure to make it back to our camp at Adder Rock in time to watch the sunset! And to not only enjoy but see our awesome astronaut (read: freeze dried) dinner!
It was actually REALLY tasty! Yum yum!
We took our dinner bag onto the beach to eat and watch the sunset together. Aww, how much more romantical can camping get? Haha
The wind had picked up quite a bit after the sun went down so we hid out in our tent for the evening. Yay!
Day 03: Sept 20
Our last day on Straddie! We decided to have breakfast, pack up and head back early in order to enjoy a whole day back in Brisbane.
This little fella never failed to show up and laugh at us in the mornings!
Our next door camping neighbour (took this with my telephoto lens). SHE HAS A FRUIT BOWL and containers with drawers!
Someone tied their bracelet to the fence
This bird greeted us on our first day and followed us everywhere around the camp ground. On the last day, it landed on my shoulder while we were having breakfast! Very cute, especially the way it wiggled it’s butt, I don’t know what kind of bird this is though, does anyone?
And that’s it! Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed it!
