Family Time in Kalbarri

Hey folks! We spent the weekend in Kalbarri, a small town north of Geraldton where one of the larger rivers meets the ocean. It is a tourist area aimed at families with beaches, parks and a little shopping. We went to a lookout the first day where there was a natural bridge, then on to the Gorges where we walked down a path to a beautiful viewing spot. This spot included "nature's window", natural hole in a rock. The day was extremely hot, so a lot of water was required! On the way back we saw a Thorny Devil on the road, we stopped to take a look and ended up causing a traffic jam! Everyone wanted to stop for pictures as well!
Day two took us to a different lookout where we hoped to see some whales or dolphins. No luck there, but Colin got some great pictures of a hawk. That evening we went to the beach and watched the sun set over the water. Can't say we were suffering! A two night Echure tournament ended up as a draw between the Aussies and Canadians, we also had to learn a few new rules because the Australians do everything differently!
We headed back in time for a nice lunch at home and a restful afternoon. Monday night Claire's parents, sister, brother-in-law, neice and nephew came for dinner. It was great finally getting to meet them.

If you are looking to Skype with us we should be back in business next Monday when we arrive in Singapore!  Details will be posted then!
