homeward bound ~ part two

Day two was spent looking around the district at a few different places.

This is the windmill collection in Penong. You have to pass through Penong when travelling to Perth, so do yourself a favour and stop in to take a look.







Next we ventured out to Point Sinclair. 

Some of the pristine white sand-hills on the way.











I remember this tragedy from my childhood. It was so sad...



From Point Sinclair to Cactus Beach, a famous remote surf beach.  However this day was not a good day for surfing, it was raining on and off and not a surfer to be seen...




This is what Cactus beach looks like on a good day...

















Stay tuned for part three...

  1. Surfers never go out in the rain; they're afraid they'll get wet.

  2. Ok I need to travel and see more of our beautiful country.
    Those white sand hills look amazing. Never seen anything so white and they look so soft.

    1. Yes you do Kylie. The far west coast of South Australia has lots of hidden treasures. It was just a pity that the weather was so overcast when we were there. It would have been so much better on a nice sunny day :)

      The next blog post has sunshine :)

    1. Yes Stephanie, it was tragic as this was a local family who everyone knew. There was also quite a crowd that witnessed the shark attack on young Wade.

      We do live in a lovely part of the world. The beaches are so peaceful, especially having them all to ourselves when there is no one else around, that is the best part!

  6. Your photos are amazing Tania. I spent some time (6 months) living & working on the Nullabor when I was 18 at one of the roadhouses. Some of your photos (especially from your Part 1 post) remind me very much of the terrain from back then.
