The tawny nurse sharks were fed with fish scraps and ate like vacuum cleaners by sucking. Standing still as they nosed around our legs was the biggest challenge but as they opened their mouths, what looked like teeth were two feelers. In the morning hurtling down horizontal waterfalls. Yes, such a thing exists. Like rapids, but you are a victim to the tide as it rises and fills one basin and drains another. Lose your motor as your hit a whirlpool and you are in trouble. The thrill of the challenge put a smile on everyone's faces. Last night we dined on a sandy cay which six hours later, would be consumed by the ocean as the tides rose again. And the Wandjina spirits are everywhere in this land that has appropriated Western names (including The Kimberley) and was home to its original inhabitants for tens of thousands of years.
One of the most remarkable places in Australia: The Kimberley. Every day is an adventure. Today we fed tawny nurse sharks who came up to investigate our legs as we were lowered into the water.
