Parry Beach

Having refilled in Albany we continued towards Denmark (yes, still in Australia) which is best described as WA's spiritual hub, the equivalent of Byron Bay. Definitely a good vibe as we drove through hoping that we'd find a campsite nearby so we could return on a day trip. Thankfully we found Parry Beach only 20 kms west, a camp amongst the trees right on the water and the best part, only $50p/w!

On arrival the camp was bustling with activity and we were lucky to find a spot to unhook the van. At the entry of the camp there is an array of local organic vegetables, honeys, jams and relishes - all using an honesty box system.

It felt like we'd found the perfect place to bunker down for Easter and celebrate someone's birthday!...

...and to top off the surprises, our good friends the Champions were there to greet us as we arrived back at camp.

Thanks Jen for making this such a memorable birthday. 

The Champions introduced us to another traveling family, Mickie, Hadas and their four gorgeous kids. We shared so many great times together.

Walking along the beach one morning we watched the netting of hundreds of Salmon. Only shame is that these beautiful fish were soon to become pet food...

...Well most of them - Matt picked up two salmon for $10 and with Brads help had fun preparing them for the gang.

Towards the end of our stay it was nice to revisit Greens Pool and Elephant Rocks on a more pleasant day.

This was our longest stint in one spot and we enjoyed the community vibe we shared with amazing and inspiring people; an experience we will always remember.
