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.


Later that 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.
