Steve, checking out Fishery Bay. Whalers Way
Down the steps at Pelamis Point to Fishery Bay. This is a popular surfing beach. Whalers Way.
Fishery Bay Beach from Pelamis Point. We had a lovely run along this beach.
Waves rolling in to Fishery Bay. No surfers out there today though. Taken from Pelamis Point.
106 metre cliffs meet the ocean at Cape Wiles. See the fur seals, enlarged in the inset.
The osprey nest at Groper Bay. This nest is now 40 years old, and the same pair of osprey return to it each year. Fancy having more babies every year for 40 years!!!
This sinkhole appeared in the middle of the road during construction in 1970. The cave was found to be 30 metres deep and 90 metres across. One wonders how much longer this point will remain before the ocean claims it!
Amazing seas over the point at Cape Carnot. Note the rivulets flowing down the rock following the wave that has just crashed over it. This rock has been dated at over 2600 million years old and is thought to be the oldest rock in the world.
This cape is the beginning of the world’s longest line of sea cliffs, the Great Australian Bight.
Waves crashing onto the rocks at Cape Carnot. Note the ‘washing machine’ of turbulent water closer to shore.
Oh look – we found it!
Theakstone Crevasse, Whalers Way. This fault fracture occurred millions of years ago and is now 13 meters deep and extends a further 30 metres underground, which didn’t fill us with confidence as we stood over that section to take the photograph.
Walk carefully Steve. That blowhole may blow any minute. Flinders Crevasse.
Steve, on the far side of Flinders Crevasse
Not the easiest walking path we’ve traversed. On the way back from Flinders Crevasse.
The old and the new. Old – this bay was named D’Anville Bay by Nicholas Baudan in 1802 after the French cartographer Jean D’Anville. The new – look at all those windmills creating electricity.
We camped at the base of a sand dune which is protecting us from the prevailing wind. Idyllic location, once again. Redbanks campsite.
Another magic day at Redbanks campsite. Having the backdoors open and sitting in the lounge gave us the very best views, and protection from the wind and sun. Heaven.
Our view of the late afternoon at Redbanks campsite. It appears grainy because the insect screen is down.
Waiting for sunset. At Redbanks campsite, Whalers Way.
Toast to yet another wonderful day in this life of ours. Whalers Way.
Cheers! Here’s to the beautiful red cliffs at Redbank campsite, Whalers Way.
The setting sun highlighting the cliffs at Redbanks campsite.
Still photography just doesn’t do broiling seas justice. The seas off our campsite at Redbanks, Whalers Way.
The myriad varieties of plants didn’t cease to amaze me. Such an inhospitable place to grow, but so beautiful.
