Zeb and Eider Duck and the humans arrived at Eighty Mile Beach.
We stayed in a cabin at Eighty Mile Beach Caravan Park.
In the U.S. we do not believe the RV parks have self-contained cabins for rent. But in Australia, many of these parks have places for your tent, your camper, cabins with shared facilities and self-contained cabins. They are great. As we approached the park, we admired these Australian greeters.
Isn’t she adorable? We love these wallabies. You may remember that a wallaby looks like a smaller kangaroo. Our park has this Memorial for Vietnam Veterans.
It was officially opened August 18, 2010. We like memorials that honor those that fought for freedom. Eighty Mile Beach is the longest uninterrupted beach in Western Australia. The beach comprises 220 kilometers of coastline between Cape Missiessy and Cape Keraudren. Let’s see the beach.
We enjoy the soft sand and the really wide beach. Many migratory birds come here in the spring to feed. Also between June and October humpback whales pass near this beach heading north. This is the Indian Ocean, but the sea is rather gentle. Humans can drive on this beach.
Fishing from the shore is popular with many humans.
There are many kinds of shells on this beach. We ducks like beaches, sand, water and shells. This is the path to leave the beach and return to our cabin.
One time when we left the camp, some of the residents did not want us to leave.
We waited patiently for them and soon they moved for us. This road sign certainly made us look twice.
Someone altered a speed bump sign. Flatback turtles do come ashore between October and April to lay eggs, but by the ocean. Not on the road. We are enjoying the view from our front porch. This proud, colorful bird really got the attention of our humans. Of course, being a fellow bird, we liked him also.
As you can guess, the sunsets here at Eighty Mile Beach on the Indian Ocean, are beautiful.
A great finale to our time at Eighty Mile Beach.
