Cape Range

Day trip into Cape Range national park today. Spotted an osprey nest on top of transmitter mast, both parents there, and chick about to fledge.
Looked at fish chart in info centre and confirmed yesterday’s ray as a shovel nosed ray.
Walked along Yardie Creek, very scenic but really hot.
Cooled off with a brilliant drift snorkel in Turquoise Bay. Huge shoals of small and large fish – stunning. Could hear them pecking at the coral! Swam over a blue spotted ray – his barb was there!
Had near miss with Roos – one now nursing a bruise and a bald patch – his fur is on our bumper!
Roo steaks were on the menu for tea tomorrow anyway!
