Another visit to South Lefroy Bay, Ningaloo Homestead has been and gone. This year the Billy's had their new JB Scorpion off road caravan and GX 200 series TTD, It sure was a change from the Jayco Swan and 100 series they had for many years.
We had our usual camp sites and arrived when the weather was hot, we got the vans positioned, awnings out and hit the water for our 1st of many swims to keep cool. The next few days were spent getting our camps finished with plenty of shade walls and floors.

We took our Kayaks up to Yardie Creek with some other campers we know and had a lovely time paddling and peddling up the gorge spotting rock wallaby's and birds.

The weather was lovely for the first month, our daily routine can become very similar and Vickie had enough by then and she flew home to spend time with our eldest granddaughters. I had a mate coming across from Victoria for a couple of weeks, Mal has visited Ningaloo with us a couple of times before with his wife Lynne but this time it was a solo trip to test out his new Camper trailer.

During his time with me we Beach fished most days and nights but our catch was dismal to say the least, a few shovel nose rays, some thread fin salmon, a spangled emperor and giant Trevally and some unstoppable sharks. With news reaching Mal that his wife wasn't well and me with my mojo struggling we choose to pull the pin early. It was a disappointing end to our stay but family comes first.

I'll admit that i am starting to lose interest in updating our blog via the clunky blogger on laptop, I have tried using my iPad with the blogger app and its not as simple to upload photos, i have started to use Face Book for any NIKNOFF updates so if your a face book user and you want to check it out just do a search for NIKNOFF Facebook ...Until next time, Safe Travels
