Today we took a drive around the area, visiting Karratha, the Burrup Peninsula, Port Walcott and Point Samson. It was great to have a loaned car to get around in.

We then drove to Port Walcott Sailing Club where my family used to take our trailer sailor for the annual regatta. The club house was deserted and has seen better days. It appeared there may be some renovation happening.

We drove around Wickham and Roebourne, but both appeared very quiet. Roebourne has some nice looking old buildings. Both have quite a few recently constructed buildings, particularly Wickham.
We had lunch at the Point Samson Resort overlooking the harbour. There were four shiploaders in action and half a dozen ships waiting their turn at anchor offshore.
