Changing Face Of Monkey Mia.
Trip Start Feb 01, 2005

We may live in paradise 24/7, here in the Shark Bay World Heritage area, but the weather is just (very occasionally) not the "paradise ideal". A case in point was two storm systems (from North and South) meeting at Shark Bay last year, that whipped the normally calm waters of the Monkey Mia beach into thrashing waves and a record breaking high tide. See pictures in this blog's album.
Other pictures in the album of this blog show the numerous different faces of Monkey Mia, from many early sunrises (Avan has a very early work start of 7.00am!) to rare instances of fog and very low and very high tides.
Shark Bay is also in the cyclone watch area and recently we kept an eye on "Narelle" as she followed the coast, but fortunately a long way out to sea
Monkey Mia is world renowned for the visiting wild dolphins but is so much more. There is a 3 km walking trail where you can view birds from a bird hide, an aboriginal shelter cave and an historic grave. The walking trail also offers amazing views over the bay. The beach is clean and perfect for swimming - just NOT in the dolphin interaction area! Boat cruises and camel rides are available for tourists and are just an everyday view for Avan while he is working for Department of the Enviroment out at Monkey Mia.
Have a look at some different views of our paradise!
