Ningaloo Kayaking Trip

June 2010 by Ness A

What ended up starting out with an accidental sleep in followed by a rush to make sure I had everything I needed was only the start of a great week and road trip ahead.  Arriving at the Rivergods depot as planned, all the gear was packed into the kayak trailor and our luggage and us ladies into the 11 seater bus we then headed towards Exmouth. 

Along the way I could feel it getting warmer so the cold of Perth became a distant memory. Having to make the usual pit stops along the way it was decided to camp overnight just outside of Canarvon to rejuvenate and obviously avoid running into any of the local wildlife along the way.  Another early morning upon us and we were back on the road only to arrive in Exmouth just in time for lunch.  After replenishing supplies we made our way out to the beach where we would spend the next week in the outdoors.

The week was filled with kayaking around Yardie Creek and beaches stopping to check out the sites as well as well earned morning snacks and lunches (I'm sorry Fee for polishing off half a can of baked beans).  For some that preferred to take a break from the kayaking mid week a hiking trip was on the agenda.  Even though there were surprises along the way 1 member in particular overcame some difficult terraine & obstacles only to come out the other end knowing she had accomplished something she never thought she'd make through with her fellow AWs there to share in such a feat and who were extremely proud of her.

I would have to say snorkeling the coral reef was the highlight of the trip for me.  Apart from surfacing every now and again to check I was still within the safety zone I could have stayed down there swimming with the ocean life for hours.  Turquoise Bay was as blues and the pictures showed and the sun as warm as a awesome summers day.  To know such a place existed in our backyard and I was there enjoying every minute was such a fantastic feeling. The nights around the campsite were filled with fun, laughter, stories, games and of course a late night walk to see what we could find or what wildlife was watching us with much interets.  All of us lent a hand to Jorien and Shaun preparing the meals and general campsite chores which really didn't feel like work at all.

Most ladies on the trip I knew but got to know more outside of our normal day to day lives and of course as always got to meet some newbies!  Even though only a week and a great week at that you definitely felt like you had a holiday and of course an adventure. After dropping off the trailor in storage for the next group we started our almost non-stop journey back to Perth (arriving ahead of schedule) and boy I was glad to be back home.  Camping is an absolute hoot no matter where you are but you can't beat the enjoyment of that first shower when home.  I definitely slept well that night!!
