From Natural Bliss to Luxury

Camping Red Bluff

Camping Red Bluff

From bush camping for 3 weeks with no western toilets and running water showers we have done a full circle. I am now working at the local Exmouth Hospital, and we have moved into a HOUSE!!! There is so much room in this place, I have had to close some of the doors to make it feel smaller. It is a 2 bedroom, with 1 bathroom, a laundry, a kitchen, dining room and lounge room. It’s actually bigger than our own unit in Perth, but by the average size of houses in Perth this place would be considered small. We are so comfortable in our cozy studio apartment, also known as our caravan, that the ‘house’ is like a mansion! Tonight we have a queen size bed to sleep on, so there will be plenty of room and no fighting over space for all four of us – me, Matt, Molly and Benson.


Unfortunately, there is not a couch in the house or inside dining table at the moment, but I think it is soon to come. In the meantime, Matt and I have made our own office to which Matt is working lots, and I am working on creating a new blog about loving yourself through creating a balanced mind, body and spirit, but more of that to come later.

To make things clear, we have not abandoned our caravan, we have chosen to move to the house as it is half the price of the caravan park, and secondly it has a small backyard with a fence for Molly & Benson. I am sure when family (and anyone else whom wants to visit) come I will be the first to put my hand up to return to the caravan.

We plan to stay in Exmouth for at least another 4 weeks while I am working at the hospital, plus to explore the beautiful beaches and surf some fun waves. And speaking of waves, there are heaps of chick surfers on the waves Whooooo!!! It will be my first reef experience, but it looks totally fun so I can’t wait to get out there.

      Hey Aims, yeah got the pooches. It’s been totally fine with them. National parks are sometimes a little tricky, but it always works out. Sometimes we sneak them in, other times leave them with a local, or ask another traveller to dog sit for the day. It’s worth having them here with us, and they are having a blast too 🙂
