Western Australia

4/10/2023: We drove over to Bremer Bay for an all-day pelagic trip to look for Orcas. This was a fairly long drive from Albany in the dark, and I have to say that driving around there at night is a bit scary as there are loads of kangaroos, foxes, and other animals in and near the road. We made it without any incident, however.
