Beautiful beaches (but not dogs, so not for us)

Lovely shady grassy sites in the park (but very small, no room for
either the truck or the boat)

Delicious pasties and pies at the bakery (but only if you get there
before 12)

As you can see, Coral Bay was a mixture of good and bad for us.
Absolutely beautiful if you have a normal sized caravan and no dog.
It's just a walk across the road to a beautiful beach for snorkelling and

This wasn't the beach across the road, these were two different beaches
where we could take Millie and we had to drive to them.  The bonus
was hardly anyone went there.

There was some fishing done, with successful results.

and sightseeing in the boat, out on Ningaloo Reef.  Unfortunately no
whales, turtles or sharks spotted, but there was plenty of coral which
unfortunately doesn't show up very well in photos.

It's not just sunshine and beautiful beaches up here, we have had some
cloudy days, and even a bit of rain at times.

Makes some interesting photos with the clouds.

Millie loved swimming here, particularly when there was someone else in
the water.

As usual there were beautiful sunsets.  Alan says "how many photos of
sunsets do you need?" But there is always the possibility that one of
them might just capture something amazing.  Anyway, digital photos -
who cares!

And of course wherever we are, there is always happy hour!

And just to show all you wonderful readers that I was there, here I am
on the beach, a little windswept this day.

That's it for our relaxing few days at Coral Beach.  Next stop Yardie
Homestead (where we are still enjoying the delights of Ningaloo Reef.)

Missing you all.
