Although we were travelling by sea, it didn’t mean we missed out on seeing mammals. Why, while passing Wommara Avenue we saw a wombat hitch-hiking to the Masai Mara; and on Kalaroo Road we saw a kangaroo either side of LA.
We stopped for a wash at the Corrie Island Nature Reserve, as it was overflowing with soap, and there were lots of spare brushes on the nearby Mungo Brush road.
We dried off under the whopper wind at the Wind Woppa Reserve.
Boomerang Wastes the Green Day
Feeling refreshed, we ate up the nautical miles at a good rate of knots in the afternoon, and a few hours later reached Boomerang Beach. That’s when the day started going downhill; or to be more accurate, around and around. Because once we stepped onto the beach we were thrown up into the air, and spun around at great speed over Elizabeth Beach and The Lakes Way.
I thought, at least we’re heading north; maybe it’s a stroke of good fortune. I saw Green Point ahead, and thought it might be a sign; maybe we’ll land on a nice patch of green when we reach it.
But I hadn’t taken the Boomerang part of the beach’s name into consideration. Because the next moment, the return movement seemed to kick in over the Booti Booti National Park, and we just about reached Green Point before being spun south again.
Before we knew it, we were returning to Boomerang Beach; and as soon as we touched the ground we were thrown back into the air for another circuit!
