9 - 11 August 2014 - 80 Mile Beach & Derby

Decided to take a look at 80 Mile Beach. The water was a stunning light blue colour which we could not resist so decided to stay for the afternoon and night. Bought a freshly baked loaf of bread and had a quick lunch after setting up camp in no time at all! Took a stroll along the beach with the water about 200m down the beach from the dunes. The beach was full of shells mixed in with thousands of sand dollars. Mixed in with the shells were live 'shells' scavanging the sand and thousands of tiny hermit crabs scampering around.

A sea eagle was chased to the sand by a seagull and then it took off, grabbed something off the beach then took flight chased by a kite.

Enjoyed the sunset with a bottle of Verve then a snack dinner before bed.

Drove to Derby where we had fish (baramundi) and chips with a bottle of white on the wharf.
