|View from Rates Lookout|
From the Mount Clare Campsite, Peter and Lutz were keen to continue on the Bibbulmun, but it proved to be a very steep track down to the Deep River suspension bridge. Knowing that we would have to walk back up this track, people started dropping out (me included!) and we gradually made our way back to Rates in a leisurely fashion.

In the afternoon, back at Coalmine Beach, I took a couple of shots of the local wildlife:
|Tame kangaroos behind our cabin|

Every day at 5.30 pm. the Nats would meet for drinks and nibbles for about an hour. Afterwards, we all retired to our respective cabins to prepare and eat dinner. These are my menus for the 4 days:
Mon: Roast chicken, coleslaw, jacket potatoes
Tues: Spaghetti bolognese
Wed: Delia's Thai chicken with rice
Thurs: Osso Buco (in slow cooker all day).
