We enjoyed a 'Sunday Drive' today further along the peninsula to Black Springs Camping Ground. It was a lovely spot..Clean and Green. The road was rough with rocks in some sections and soft with sand in other. Luckily John did not need to let the tyres down on our vehicle. After traveling the Canning Stock route twice John has had a lot of experience driving on sand. NB The Canning has 1000 dunes to cross each way!
It was quite windy so we took our lunch down to the beach and sat in a sheltered spot near some rocks. We were in Coffin Bay in 2001 and, unfortunately John was bitten by a wild bee. After sitting and eating our lunch we began to notice that bees were flying by. Sure enough they were entering a hole in the rocks where they must have had a nest. We packed up very soon!!
