“We Realised We Were Not Alone That Morning on the Jetty”
As we started our day we talked about there being something in the air at Monkey Mia that makes you feel like you belong, so it was no surprise to find that the word ‘Mia’ derives from the Aboriginal word for home.
The sun was rising over the water, which is a very rare sight in WA with its ocean being situated to the west. The sky transformed from a dark blue into reds and pinks, and as we sat there we realised we were not alone that morning on the jetty.
Calmly drifting around in the waters beneath us were green sea turtles, and fantail stingrays. Just offshore we could see a pod of dolphins and some seabirds catching their morning snacks.
