Cruising on Radiance of the Sea March 2012

looking down on the lobby.Wehave been on the ship for 3 days now and have explored most of it. The solarium is my favorite spot for reading and the hot tub.We went to a show on the first night and to the cinema today. Have fouind some good bars where the grog is resonable priced. The food is great, but we will roll of at the end of the cruise. More photos tomorrow.

Dampier _ Red Dog

While we were staying at Karratha we went for a drive to Dampier and this is the statue of Red Dog. Have just been to see the movie, thought it was great, very funny and the music was fabulous, recommend seeing it!

More Barn Hill

Sunset over the ocean from our camp.

Our camp.

Historic cairn on top of Barn Hill.

Just a couple of parrots

View of the caravan park from the top of the hill.

North shore from the track up from the beach.

This ablution block is a bit primitive, no roof, toilets on the left and showers on the right. Hot water comes from black pipe rolled up in the sun, so get there early.

Out front of our camp.

The group doing Tai Chi every morning.

Our camp from the back.

Two campfires, one for heat & one to sit around.

Steve and Sue's camp.

Sue in what they call the Hoochy.

Me at the Sunday Markets. Sold patchwork bags, placemats etc.

Overview of the markets. Due to the transient population there was a different crowd every week.

This is Brian from Carnarvon. With a little bit of a shave I thought he was a spitting image of my granddad! What do you think family? Lovely fellow.

The two Brian's and Ricky the dog.

Me with Peter and Wendy Hill one happy hour.

Boab Prison Tree

Did a quick trip to Derby to see the prison tree, they take their boab's very seriously there as you can see the roads go around the tree instead of bulldozing it down.

This house including the roof has been built around the boab tree!

This is the prison tree, awful inside, I would hate to even get in it let alone stay in it!

Had lots of carving on it but unfortunately most were unreadable.

Gives you an idea of the size of it.
