Sandy Point – first camp in WA and first time bogged

We headed out of Perth and along the Sunset Coast tourist drive and it was easy to see why so many people come to Perth and never leave. The sunsets and coast are so beautiful and this drive was a lovely stretch of coast. We headed to a little spot up the road just past Jurien Bay called Sandy Point and got a protected beach camp – where Andrew promptly got the car and trailer bogged in some deep soft sand – but we dropped the tyre pressure and were soon able to move again.

Bogged at first camp!

The kids madly raced to try their new wet suits at the beach and they proved a worthwhile investment. Sandy Point is a council owned camp site with cheap fees and toilet facilities provided.

Sandy Point was the start of week three on the road and school was back in Melbourne so school of the road started too.

The first sunset over the west did not disappoint us.
