Camping Trip

We just got back from 3 days away camping in Bremer Bay with our friends and their 4 kids and little dog, Ted.

On the way there we saw this huge Wedge-tailed Eagle! It was sitting in the middle of the road and looked like a kangaroo, until it flew up into a nearby tree!
The Wedge-tailed Eagle is Australia's largest living bird of prey and one of the largest eagles in the world. It can have a wingspan up to 2.3m.

We stayed at Bremer Bay Beaches Resort, and had the campsite pretty much all to ourselves which was lovely. It was our first real go at camping as a family, although we kind of cheated and stayed in a caravan park instead of roughing it in the national park.

The first day was hot and sunny and we all went down to the beach where the kids had heaps of fun frollicking along the sand and walking to the nearby rocks.

We all went to the pool in the afternoon, even though it was getting a little chilly by then

The next day was raining so the kids occupied themselves by collecting snails to play with

... and played cards in the camper's kitchen which was lovely and dry

On the last night we went out for pizza and icecream which was popular with everyone, and then the kids played with glowsticks on the tennis courts until bedtime. It poured all night, but we were all warm and dry in our tents.

Camping in a caravan park was lovely and easy... I don't know if we are ready to go camping in the wild just yet... we might have a few more trips to caravan parks first, until we are more organised!


  1. Looks like a lovely time away Ruth. Gorgeous location. BTW I'm finding your playlist addictive listening. Love the Geoff Moore song :D

  2. Wow, that is just beautiful!!!! Hope you had a wonderful time~

  3. What a lovely trip - it looked like so much fun!

  4. Oh looks like you had a great time camping, despite the rain. We are heading off for a camping Christmas and heaps of people think we are mad camping with three young kids but your post has reassured me that we aren't totally insane!

  5. lovely pics - we are hoping to go camping next summer , but don't think we'll be seeing birds as gorgeous as yours. Hopefully there wont be that many snails either -yuk
