Lucky Bay Western Australia

I fell in love at Lucky Bay
The camp at Cape Le Grande
Where the beach curves round to the Southern Sea
From Australia’s whitest sand.

Where kangaroos lay on the pristine beach
And gather around your camp site
And a lazy goanna wanders by
And a python might visit at night.

Where the air is filled with bird songs
As they flit between the trees
Seeking out the honey
They share with native bees.

Where the long white beach invites you in
It’s turquoise waters lapping the shore,
And the rocky islands beckon you
From the ink blue of the ocean floor.

Where the sun shines bright in a clear blue sky
And stars fill the black depths of night
And the lamps of the fishermen shine from the rocks
And the squid come up to the light.

Where your neighbours are from everywhere
Every corner of the earth
And the accents fly as they all enjoy
The sun, the sand and the surf.

Where the coffee van comes by each day
And parks right on the beach
But the rest of civilization
Is so far out of reach.

We’re 60ks from Esperance
No phone, no web, no news
But all of that is meaningless
When you dine with kangaroos.

At night you hear the gentle waves
As they roll upon the beach
And I think how lucky we all are
That Lucky Bay is within everyone’s reach.

Yes, I fell in love at Lucky Bay
I fell in love with WA.
