When we were kids, whenever my sisters and I were bundled into the car, invariably one of us would ask "Dad...where are we going"? The usual response from Dad was "There and back to see how far it is". Within these pages Sharon and I have tried to capture our experiences and impressions of the places and people we've come across whilst trying to find out for ourselves "..how far it is".
Day 16: 9th Sept 2014
This morning we drove the short distance from the caravan park to the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse for a tour of the surrounding buildings, and a climb up the tallest lighthouse on the mainland. The views from the catwalk around the outside of the light were impressive, as were the winds that threatened to blow us off our feet.
Being the most south western point of mainland Australia, it's also the corner where the Indian and Southern Oceans intersect.
afternoon we tried a spot of fishing from the beach, only managing to land some
very small, juvenile Bream. Sharon and Wendy, in the meantime, did a bit of beachcombing.
Today was our first
day of mostly fine weather for what feels like forever.
Our sheltered and private site at Augusta
Augusta, at this
time of the year at least, is a quiet, sleepy little place that would be an
ideal location to sit back and recharge the batteries.
