Thanks for popping in.
Leaving Albany behind, we pass through Denmark and stop off at Elephant Rocks and Greens Pool on our way along the coast to Walpole.
|Elephant Rocks, can you see the elephant's eye?|
At the highest point, you are 40m above the ground with the giant tingle trees still stretching up.
Walpole itself is is a small town with some nice cafés and restaurants on the Walpole and Nornalup Inlets.
We had to have a walk round the smaller inlet and take in the nature including our first small black snake. A beautiful spot.
The summit was closed and we heard later that Ray Mears was there making a film, but we found an excellent walk nonetheless.
Fernhook Pool was a delightful spot.
WOW Wilderness Ecocruises provide a very entertaining cruise through both inlets over the wilderness of Nuyts Peninsula to Circus Beach where horses were trained for WWI, sadly none returned. That area is protected and we had to disinfect our shoes to prevent dieback. What a beautiful spot especially as the sun was starting to set. Gary Muir the tour guide packed in so much information on all sorts of topics in an exuberant way and provided cake as well.
Only one night in Walpole, so off we go to our next destination.
