Sep 19, 2016 - Cliff Head North

Had a bit of drama about midnight when the threatening rain arrived with some pretty strong winds. After wondering if our awning was going to survive, we made a decision to quickly put up one of our shade walls to hopefully give the awning some more support (it was too dangerous to try and actually put the awning up). Anyway, our plan seemed to work, so after getting ourselves cold and soaking wet we finally got back into bed about 1am. Of course, the wind and rain seemed to stop almost as soon as we got back into bed! Oh, well! We woke up...

Sep 18, 2016 - Roadside stop 7k from Dongera to Cliff Head North- about 15k south of Dongera/Port Denison

We were in Dongera by about 10am and after a bit of a drive around town we stopped at the bakery and bought some some goodies.

I really wanted to see the Wreath flowers which are only found in this area, so we headed back out of town for about 35k to find them and foxgloves just flowering beside the road. Apparently the Wreath flower really likes disturbed soil, so...

Mar 19, 2014 - Port Denison

We moved on from Green Head relatively early heading for Dongara and Port Denison. We turned off to the south beach and followed the road behind the cafe then realised we were heading right for the beach so began backing up when along came a man who told us the beach was as hard as a rock and would be no problem for us to drive on. David didn't need any more encouragement and we drove onto the beach being careful not to get too close to the water. We had intended to stay for the night but then along came the Ranger and told us in a nice...
