Cheynes Beach (Easter Weekend Trip 2014)
My trip started on Good Friday 4am in the morning, loaded the rug rats and the wife in the patrol, connected the trailer and started the decent towards Cheynes Beach to meet the other troops that had started their Easter trip the day before.
After a 5-hour trek we were graced by the serenity of Cheynes Beach.  With an undulating coastline with beautiful white beaches.
After a quick setup the rest of the troops returned to camp.  At this point I had a good look around and noticed something slightly out of place - an 80 series land crab.  Richard what were you thinking?  I suppose we needed something to recover for the weekend!
Well time to head down to the beach to catch dinner but the only thing I got was being dumped by a wave.  Now Richard and Joe rubbed it in as they had caught dinner.  But it wasn't all that bad as someone else didn't catch anything either (mmm guess who?) Sorry Rob.

Now time to crank the fire and try some of Joe’s fish - yum. Richard informed us all that he has herpes but it was ok because it is a STI not a STD.
On the Saturday morning the majority of us decided to head into Albany for a decent coffee.  After executing an advanced driving course through the very tight and busy car park we all entered the packed Dome.  It was decided after a quick arm wrestle that we would convoy up to the war memorial over looking Victoria Bay. Due to midgets in go carts we were unable to get up to the memorial, but we were just up the road from the Princess Royal Barracks so we decided to go and have a look as it had come highly recommend as a place to visit.  WOW what a place!  We all would highly recommend it to any traveler.  The kids and the Dads had fun traversing the guns.

A quick trip after this took us out the Gap and the Natural Bridge.  We were blessed with great weather and had a drive through picturesque Albany.

After everyone going their separate ways for a while and then us all meeting up again, Howezit took us out to Two Peoples Bay to a beach called “Little Beach”.  This is by far worth a look.  Few sand fights between numerous kids and Rob took place but all in good fun.

Sunday was dedicated for those to catch a fish whom hadn’t the day before. Eat your heart out Rex Hunt.  Rob caught a fish, then another and another.
Well with the morning fishing completed it was time for the hunt.  The King of the Kids, Joe, discretely placed all the chocolate wonders.  The whirlwind started.  After every good Easter egg hunt you need to get the patrols dirty.  So off to mermaid Point we hopped (sorry about the humor).  It got boggy, it got tight and the patrols got mightily scratched.  We didn't think Thomas and Joe were going to survive!!!

Back at Cheynes Beach, a drive along the beach and maybe some fun in the dunes remembering it is very important to put your truck in 4WD (Rob).
Up into the dunes we went.  Richard in usual fashion eyed the biggest hill off and decided to take it on.  Well Richard you need to make it to the hill first.  Yes he became bogged but he says he was just traction ally challenged not bogged!  We beg to differ.

On Monday morning we decided to go for another early morning fish.  I had to get something as my troops were getting hungry.  Finally it happened!

All in all it was a great weekend a big thanks to all who came along and joined in the fun.  Until next time…..
