It's very different

I read an article in last week's Journal regarding a guy planning a visit to Exmouth, Australia.
The article included a suggestion of him taking a plaque and maybe twinning with the two Exmouths, here and there.
Thought you would be interested to know that I was in Exmouth, Australia, at this time last year.
(My sister lives in Corinella, Oz) We visited various places in Oz including Exmouth. It is on a peninsula, half way up the west coast of Oz. People visit specifically to go by boat to see and dive with whalesharks, there are also humpbacks, dolphins and turtles etc.
Exmouth centre has about half a dozen shops, most of which are tourist-based. You can hardly call it a town as it is sprawled out. The peninsular has tropical coastline but scrubland through most of it.
There is a small airport where tourists fly in and out. Exmouth is two days’ drive northwards from Perth. There is a new marina where the wealthy large boat owners moor. A large Novatel beside this. Although it was winter time in Oz, Exmouth was hot and windy.
The whole place is dry and sandy except for the tropical coastline.
Just thought you might like to know about it and how different it is from our Exmouth.
You might like to pass this on to the guy who is going out there and whoever wrote the article.
