|This awesome beach was made up of millions of teeny tiny white cockle shells.|
Miss Fancy is an ocean lover so she has really been in paradise since we landed on the coast of Western Australia.
Her top priority for the trip was to see some dolphins. But since we didn't know which loop we would take with The Big Adventure, there were two fail proof options available. Either we could see the dolphins at Sea World in Queensland or, as I believe I put it at the time, "if we don't go to Queensland we will be able to actually see and feed the dolphins in the ocean at Monkey Mia. And it's FREE!"
So, please allow me to now remove my foot from my mouth and break down the real costs of this free experience.
Cost of staying on the beach with a mob of friendly Emus as your neighbours: $58
Cost of National Park Fees: $30
Pet Bond: $50
Cost of 2 peach ciders to kick off the afternoon: $14
Number of grey hairs that emerged while patiently waiting for the dolphins to make their appearance from the depths of the ocean: many
The number of times I had to tell the kids that the dolphins were coming "soon": about 100
Cost of petrol to drive 10,000km from Sydney to Monkey Mia: too much so let's not go there yet!
The look on Miss Fancy's face after she was picked to feed the dolphin its daily allocation of fish: Priceless
