we had to leave exmouth today. sure, we could have extended the stay but with the school holidays starting we would have had to move to another site and we figured if we have to move anyway we might … go back to coral bay.

before we leave the reef we would like to do one more snorkel trip and whether we now do this in exmouth or coral bay really does not matter too much.

our friends nicole & ian (and their kids georgia & bailey) were leaving too. they were kind enough to take us out to the reef on their boat yesterday. the wind was a bit chilly but the reef was spectacular as always.

we saw whales breaching, dugongs, dolphins and a few turtles.

all the photos above were taken just a few meters off the coral bay beach. really!

with nat’s little $99 underwater camera.

even this little lion fish.

ningaloo is one of the best places we have been so far. even in winter!
