I'm just back from a holiday in Perth WA which included a trip to Monkey Mia so I thought I'd share a few of the photos taken along the way. As I haven't finished sorting them all yet I'll post a few at a time. Weather was a little over the top with temps varying between 37C and 44C which tends to slow you down a bit, it also makes for ideal bush fire weather as you'll see from the following sequence of shots.

This series was taken over a period of 30 minutes only and shows how fast a fire can develop. We were diverted around it by police and had a 20+ km drive over unmade roads to avoid the fire, good fun when all you can see of other road users is this

Image

Believe it or not but there is a vehicle in the dust directly in front of our vehicle, you have to follow a long way back so that, if there's one coming the other way you will see it come out of the dust cloud. At one point a road train passed us going in the other direction and we had to stop as visibility was literally nil :!:

Driving back at the end of the week we were able to go through the area affected and this is a smple of how the roadside looked.

Had a great time although as I said it was bloody hot which really restricts you getting out and about. Walking anywhere when it's hitting 37C+ is something you usually don't do by choice. I'm going to add some other shots over the next few days of the local area from both land and sea (we had around 6 hours cruising on a large catamaran out on the bay).

We saw plenty of Emus (see the thread on chickens) but with the heat not a lot else.There were a few feral goats, a King brown snake who none of whom waited about for a photo opportunity plus this little guy

Image

He's a Shark Bay heath dragon and is about the size of a newly hatched central beardie! We did spend some time on an ex-ocean racing catamaran on the bay and saw a bit more in the way of aquatic wildlife - I'll cover that in another thread once.
